Citrus trees used to be commonplace in residential settings. However, impacts from citrus canker and more recently citrus greening, have significantly reduced the residential enjoyment of these iconic fruit trees. The goal of this project is to evaluate tools that are available to commercial citrus growers for use by residents at their homes. These tools include Individual Protective Covers (IPCs), reflective ground cover, red dyed kaolin, and insecticides and fungicides.
