Insecticide sprays, natural enemy assemblages and predation on Asian citrus psyllid, Diaphorina citri (Hemiptera: Psyllidae).
The Asian citrus psyllid (ACP), Diaphorina citri Kuwayama is considered a key citrus pest due to its role as vector of 'huanglongbing' (HLB) or citrus greening, probably the most economicallyExpand

Thresholds for Vector Control and Compatibility with Beneficial Fauna in Citrus with High Incidence of Huanglongbing
Huanglongbing (HLB) or citrus greening disease is vectored by the Asian citrus psyllid (ACP), Diaphorina citri Kuwayama. Vector control is considered a basic component of HLB management even in aExpand

Economic value of conservation biological control for management of the Asian citrus psyllid, vector of citrus Huanglongbing disease.
BACKGROUND Huanglongbing (HLB) is the most devastating disease associated with citrus, transmitted by its principal vector Diaphorina citri, the Asian citrus psyllid (ACP). At present, the onlyExpand
