Laboratory and field trials will be done using a psyllid repellent being developed by ISCA Technologies, to determine if the product is repellent to pear paylla. Laboratory assays will be done using a sex pheromone attractant of pear psylla to determine whether saturation of the air with this product leads to delays in males locating females, and in inseminating females.
