What is Pierce's Disease?

Pierce’s Disease is a bacterial infection, which is spread by bugs that feed on grapevines, particularly the "glassy winged sharpshooter." Grapevines that become infected with PD can quickly become sick and die.

Search for and collect egg parasitoids of the glassy-winged sharpshooter in the southeastern USA and northeastern Mexico.
