Psyllids control with sound waves

Psyllids control with sound waves
Researchers of Florida have designed an acoustic device to fight the psyllids. The device is capable of detecting the incoming male call and emitting a fake female response call with which the male gets trapped resulting in the disruption of mating. The study supports that, using this device instead of pesticides could increase the production of food and reduce the risk of psyllids’ resistance development against pesticides.
