Nissinen, Anne (2007) Looking for ecological control of carrot psyllid. Forskningsnytt om økologisk landbruk i Norden (3-4), pp. 8-9.
The results suggest that a one-week trap replacement period, which is the current practise in carrot psyllid monitoring, is too long at the early growth stages of carrot. Regardless of the oviposition (laying of eggs) preference for a certain carrot cultivars, the possibility of a functional push-pull control strategy based on limonene seems unlikely, since the repellent effect of limonene could not be verified. Further field studies with possible repellent compounds, such as winter host volatiles, will be needed to develop an efficient ecological control method for this species.
