Research Project: REPELLENTS AND ATTRACTANTS FOR ASIAN CITRUS PSYLLID

Location: Subtropical Insects and Horticulture Research

Project Number: 6618-22320-001-10
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jan 26, 2009
End Date: Dec 31, 2013

Objective:
Identify repellents or attractants that could be used to manage the Asian citrus psyllid.

Approach:
Cooperator will provide ARS with various guava essence fractions, which ARS will screen for repellency or attractancy to the psyllid using olfactometer and EAD/EAG studies. Cooperator will further fractionate active fractions, and ARS will screen these as well. The chemical nature of any repellents or attractants found will be determined, if possible.
