Timing Aphytis release in coastal citrus



Timing Aphytis release in coastal citrus



Citrograph 72(7): 128-129, 131



The relationship between the phenology of the diaspidid red scale on citrus in coastal California (as monitored with pheromone traps and related to temperature sums) and that of its aphelinid parasite Aphytis (as monitored with sticky traps) was determined in 1981 and 1982. The information was used to determine the best periods at which to release species of Aphytis as biological control agents.
