Caption: Plant disease transmission research. Entomologist attaching a gold wire to a glassy-winged sharpshooter (Homalodisca vitripennis) to allow its feeding to be recorded by an AC-DC electrical penetration graph (EPG) monitor. Silver print paint is used to attach a pure gold wire to the insect. The electrical waveform allows researchers to study feeding behaviours while the mouthparts are inserted inside a plant. This research looks at how this insect transmits Pierce's disease bacteria into grape vines.
