July 7: Citrus Monitoring in Tulare

Used to seeing beautiful citrus on grocery store shelves? California red scale (CRS) colonizes and feeds on citrus fruit, coating the entire fruit in an unsightly infestation that makes it unfit for sale on shelves and lowers its value.
The Suterra field team was recently monitoring for CRS in a citrus orchard in Tulare, CA, working hard to keep your citrus beautiful! Male CRS are attracted to a pheromone lure and land on a sticky trap where populations can be assessed to help growers make important pest management decisions.
