Optimize pheromone-based mating disruption and control of the citrus leafminer; develop new semiochemical-based methods for Diaprepes root weevil and for the Asian Citrus Psyllid (ACP).
ARS has developed new methods for field application of SPLAT™ products and has discovered and/or optimized pheromone blends for insect control. Cooperator will synthesize and formulate semiochemicals and provide experimental formulations for testing by ARS in Florida and elsewhere.
