Control of the Asian citrus psyllid vector, Diaphorina citri, is probably the best documented method of slowing spread of huanglongbing or citrus greening disease that is ravaging Florida citrus. “Dormant” sprays directed against adults when trees are not actively growing has proven to be an effective control measure, especially when applied area wide. The next steps are to integrate psyllid monitoring and decision making, biological and cultural controls into a true area wide IPM program.
