Strong genetic structure among populations of the invasive avocado pest Pseudacysta perseae (Heidemann) (Hemiptera: Tingidae) reveals the source of introduced populations


In 2004, the avocado lace bug (ALB) Pseudacysta perseae, was discovered in San Diego County, CA, USA. Historically, California avocado producers have relied on biological control for suppression of injurious pests. A fundamental step in identifying biological control agents is determining the source of the invasive population, thus allowing a focused search… (More)
