Citrus gall wasp is a major and widespread pest in citrus. Established in 2015, this project is developing national management strategies for the wasp based on: enhanced biological control; better timing of control actions, through investigation of the relationship between weather and the wasp’s development (the development of ‘degree-day’/phenology models); improved use of oil and other potential repellents.
