Tiny wasps from Pakistan that kill psyllids

The Texas Master Gardener Association sent me a notice of upcoming meetings for August.  As a matter of fact, one is today.

But they included a link to an LA Times article on Citrus Greening and the introduction of small wasp predators from Pakistan which are supposed to kill the carrier of the disease, the psyllids.  I have downloaded the article to keep it and I have put it here for reference.

Here is the schedule of the meetings:

Wednesday, August 7th at 9:00am -MG Intern Class– Vegetable Gardening
