Research Project: Exploitation of Visual Stimuli for Better Monitoring and Management of ACP in Young Citrus Plantings – Enhancement Funds

Location: Insect Behavior and Biocontrol Research

Project Number: 6036-22000-025-21-R
Project Type: Reimbursable Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Nov 5, 2013
End Date: Jun 30, 2014

To develop visual targets that optimize attraction of asian citrus psyllids.

We will evaluate visual different factors relating to attractions (i.e. color contrast, polarization, background contrast, polarization, translucence) in laboratory and field studies to obtain the most attractive visual targets.
