Development of Pheromone Traps for Monitoring Citrus Leafminer

The citrus leafminer (CLM), Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae) is a problem for growers in most of regions of the world where citrus is grown (Heppner 1998). Grapefruit, tangerine, and pummelo are among the most susceptible hosts, but the leafminer can attack all varieties of citrus and some related plant species (Legaspi and French 2003).
