Attract-and-kill device for Asian citrus psyllid - closeup

An attract-and-kill device for suppression of Asian citrus psyllid (Diaphorina citri) on residential citrus consists of a weather-resistant, plastic triangle treated with a contact insecticide and colored a yellow-green hue that visually attracts adult psyllids because it mimics the color of young citrus shoots that are their preferred egg-laying and feeding sites.
