Abstract
We seek an attractant for the asian citrus psyllid that can be formulated with ISCA's proprietary biodegradable matrix to provide an efficient attractant blend that is specific to ACP, creating a rain-fast product that sticks to foliage, protecting and releasing the active ingredient for more than two months in field situations. Applied mechanically, this formulation will be tested among field populations of ACP to achieve control of this insidious pest.
