Managing Citrus Psyllid in Young Trees

Researcher Henry Yonce describes citrus psyllid control with young trees using Verimark®.

Henry Yonce, president of KAC Agricultural Research, evaluated insect control products for citrus psyllid control to prevent damage from Huanglongbing (HLB) or greening disease in young trees.

He tested Verimark® and Exirel® insect control and found excellent control of citrus psyllid and leafminer.

The EPA registered label contains the statement, “This product is highly toxic to bees exposed to direct treatment on blooming crops or weeds. Do not apply this product or allow to drift to blooming crops or weeds if bees are foraging in the treatment area.” State registrations for DuPont™ Verimark® insect control are pending.
