Scroll down to read summaries of our current and recently completed research. Some descriptions include links to more information. Current research in the Cullen lab focuses on corn rootworm, European corn borer, and corn earworm insect pests of field corn and processing sweet corn. Variant western corn rootworm (WCR) is an emerging pest for Wisconsin farmers. Unlike the normal WCR population, variant WCR lays eggs in non-corn crops conferring resistance to crop rotation. Replicated, on-farm experiments with variant WCR combine entomological IPM sampling research on five case study farms in southern Wisconsin with economic ...
(external parasites) that feed on the mucus, epidermal tissue, and blood of host marine fish. This article focuses on the genera Lepeophtheirus and Caligus which parasitize marine fish, in particular those species that have been recorded on farmed salmon . Lepeophtheirus salmonis and various Caligus species are adapted to saltwater and are major ectoparasites of farmed and wild Atlantic salmon. Several antiparasitic drugs have been developed for control purposes. Since L. salmonis is the major sea louse of concern and has the most known about its biology and interactions with its salmon host, this review will focus on this species.

Visit this blog again for new updates (if any) on research & extension journals related to insect and slug parasitic nematodes You can identify these insect-parasitic nematodes at genus level by baiting soil with wax moth larvae. If dead wax moth larva turns red then it is infected with nematode from genus Heterorhabditis and if it turns creamy or yellowish black then it is infected the nematodes from genus Steinernema. See pictures of dead red and creamy colored wax moth larvae infected with Heterorhabditis and Steinernema nematodes respectively in my one of blogs “life cycle of entomopathogenic nematodes”.

ipm: integrated pest management
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is sometimes referred to as a total science that encompasses the basic principles that guides the perception of the right way to approach pest control and pesticide application. The ultimate goal of Integrated Pest Management should be to identify conditions that are conducive to unwanted pest presence, the measurement of tolerable pest thresholds, and the best way to control pests in a manner that is the least destructive to the environment. We can better identify conditions that are conducive to an unwanted pest presence by recognizing the three aspects that make up Integrated Pest Management. ... market research, surveys and trends


Melon, vegetable use gains expected
Per capita vegetable and melon disappearance (also referred to as use or consumption) is forecast to rise 1 percent to 445 pounds this year. Increased consumption is expected for most major categories, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, including fresh, canning, and freezing vegetables. Among the top five vegetables, increases are expected for potatoes, tomatoes, sweet corn, and lettuce, while per capita use of onions is expected to decline, given smaller spring and summer crops this year. A small reduction is also expected for dry edible beans as 2003 production declines. Canned and frozen vegetables are expected ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Experts check health of Virginia Tech's trees
Jay Stipes, Virginia Tech's retired "tree doctor" and a plant pathologist, checks the leaves of a century-old white oak on the Drillfield. BLACKSBURG -- It was 9 a.m. on a recent Tuesday, and already the temperature had risen to 85 degrees on the open ground of Virginia Tech's Drillfield. But under the branches of the big bur oak, a cool and gentle breeze encouraged passers-by to linger. Beneath it, five of Tech's tree experts gathered. Represented among them were three generations of tree scientists -- some of the youngsters having studied with the elders. Jay Stipes, Tech's retired "tree ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Can Dogs Save Us From Bedbug Scourge?
“Like so many other buildings in New York City, the Empire State Building had a small occurrence specific to a uniform storage area in the basement of the building,” a spokesman for the iconic skyscraper said in a statement. “The area has been fully cleared.” Bedbugs have also found their way into several movie theaters around the city. The AMC Magic Johnson Harlem 9 had a report of a bedbug bite on July 30 and, according to a company spokesman, the theater was immediately shut down for treatment. But that incident prompted the chain to inspect each of its locations in Manhattan. The company found bedbugs on ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Integrated Pest Management-Science Tracer Bullet-Library of Congress
Currently several techniques exist for limiting damages caused by agricultural pests. The application of pesticides alone is the most common approach, but it can be harmful to the agroecosystem in which it is used and can be less effective than other methods. Another means of pest control is biological control, which seeks to eliminate the use of pesticides. In biological control preservation of the pest’s natural enemies is essential, as is the utilization of biopesticides, naturally occurring substances that ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

Google Answers: Using Metarhizium anisopliae for controlling ...
Please search for me the latest and most valuable documents in using Metarhizium anisopliae for controlling Coptotermes Formosanus termite . mphuc-ga, Thanks for your question. I've listed below what strike me as the main, recent papers on this topic. In addition to research on direct control, I've also included some closely-related papers, such as the conditions under which M. anisopliae can thrive in a termite nest. Two key researchers in this field are Changlu Wang at Purdue and Alan Lax at USDA...their contact information is included below. I trust this is the information you needed. But if ...
