Can anything be done to maintain the effectiveness of pyrethroid-impregnated bednets against malaria vectors? (1/579)

Pyrethroid-treated bednets are the most promising available method of controlling malaria in the tropical world. Every effort should be made to find methods of responding to, or preventing, the emergence of pyrethroid resistance in the Anopheles vectors. Some cases of such resistance are known, notably in An. gambiae in West Africa where the kdr type of resistance has been selected, probably because of the use of pyrethroids on cotton. Because pyrethroids are irritant to mosquitoes, laboratory studies on the impact of, and selection for, resistance need to be conducted with free-flying mosquitoes in conditions that are as realistic as possible. Such studies are beginning to suggest that, although there is cross-resistance to all pyrethroids, some treatments are less likely to select for resistance than others are. Organophosphate, carbamate and phenyl pyrazole insecticides have been tested as alternative treatments for nets or curtains. Attempts have been made to mix an insect growth regulator and a pyrethroid on netting to sterilize pyrethroid-resistant mosquitoes that are not killed after contact with the netting. There seems to be no easy solution to the problem of pyrethroid resistance management, but further research is urgently needed.  (+info)

Chagas disease vector control through different intervention modalities in endemic localities of Paraguay. (2/579)

In a field study carried out in three rural communities in Paraguay in a zone endemic for Chagas disease, we implemented three different vector control interventions--spraying, housing improvement, and a combination of spraying plus housing improvement--which effectively reduced the triatomine infestation. The reduction of triatomine infestation was 100% (47/47) in the combined intervention community, whereas in the community where housing improvement was carried out it was 96.4% (53/55). In the community where fumigation alone was used, the impact was 97.6% (40/41) in terms of domiciliary infestation. In all the houses where an intervention was made, an 18-month follow-up showed reinfestation rates of less than 10%. A serological survey of the population in the pre- and post-intervention periods revealed a shift in positive cases towards older age groups, but no significant differences were observed. The rate of seroconversion was 1.3% (three new cases) in the community with housing improvement only, but none of these cases could have resulted from vector transmission. The most cost-effective intervention was insecticide spraying, which during a 21-month follow-up period had a high impact on triatomine infestation and cost US$ 29 per house as opposed to US$ 700 per house for housing improvement.  (+info)

Chemical control of Haematobia irritans with 0.5% topical ivermectin solution in cattle. (3/579)

A field trial was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of a topical formulation of ivermectin administered at the dose of 500 micrograms/kg against horn flies (Haematobia irritans) in cattle. Eighty-eight cattle in four herds naturally exposed to horn flies were used in the trial. Replicates were formed of two herds. Within replicates, one herd was randomly allocated to the untreated control and the other to the ivermectin treatment group. Horn fly counts were taken on the treatment day (Day 0) and on Days 7, 14, 21, 28, and 35 post-treatment. There were no horn flies on any cattle in the treatment group, whereas all the control cattle were continuously infested by horn flies on each examination day.  (+info)

Genomic and evolutionary analysis of Feilai, a diverse family of highly reiterated SINEs in the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti. (4/579)

Five short interspersed repetitive elements (SINEs) were found fortuitously in the introns of a steroid hormone receptor AaHR3-2 gene of the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti, constituting a novel family of tRNA-related SINEs named Feilai. In addition, nine other Feilai elements were found in currently available sequences in Ae. aegypti, six of which were also near genes. Approximately 5.9 x 10(4) copies of Feilai were present in Ae. aegypti, equivalent to 2% of the entire genome. An additional 35 Feilai elements were isolated from a genomic library. Of the total 49 Feilai elements, 20 were full-length. Sequence comparisons and phylogenetic analyses of the full-length elements strongly suggest that there are at least two subfamilies within the Feilai family. There is a high degree of conservation within the two subfamilies. However, sequence divergence between the subfamilies, along with the presence of highly degenerate Feilai elements, suggests that Feilai is likely a diverse family of SINEs that has existed in Ae. aegypti for a long time. Many Feilai elements were closely associated with other transposons, especially with fragments of non-LTR retrotransposons and miniature inverted-repeat transposable elements. The 500-bp sequences immediately flanking a Feilai element were highly A + T-rich, which is consistent with the fact that no Feilai has been found in the coding regions of genes. It is likely that the highly reiterated and interspersed Feilai elements are partially responsible for the pattern of short-period interspersion of the Ae. aegypti genome. The evolutionary relationship between Feilai and the Ae. aegypti genome is likely complex.  (+info)

Environmental controls in reducing house dust mites and nasal symptoms in patients with allergic rhinitis. (5/579)

A randomized comparison group pretest-posttest experimental design was used to quantitatively determine the effects of environmental control measures on patients with allergic rhinitis. Environmental controls included wrapping the mattress with a vinyl cover, washing the top bedding cover with 55 degrees C hot water every two weeks, removal of soft furniture, and wet cleaning of the bedroom floor every day. Thirty subjects were randomly assigned to experimental and control groups. The amount of house dust mites in dust samples collected from the bedroom floor, bedding and mattress, as well as the nasal symptoms of patients, were measured twice at one-month intervals. A significant decrease in house dust mites in dust samples and relief in patients' nasal symptoms were observed in the experimental group who had environmental controls.  (+info)

Short report: entomologic inoculation rates and Plasmodium falciparum malaria prevalence in Africa. (6/579)

Epidemiologic patterns of malaria infection are governed by environmental parameters that regulate vector populations of Anopheles mosquitoes. The intensity of malaria parasite transmission is normally expressed as the entomologic inoculation rate (EIR), the product of the vector biting rate times the proportion of mosquitoes infected with sporozoite-stage malaria parasites. Malaria transmission intensity in Africa is highly variable with annual EIRs ranging from < 1 to > 1,000 infective bites per person per year. Malaria control programs often seek to reduce morbidity and mortality due to malaria by reducing or eliminating malaria parasite transmission by mosquitoes. This report evaluates data from 31 sites throughout Africa to establish fundamental relationships between annual EIRs and the prevalence of Plasmodium falciparum malaria infection. The majority of sites fitted a linear relationship (r2 = 0.71) between malaria prevalence and the logarithm of the annual EIR. Some sites with EIRs < 5 infective bites per year had levels of P. falciparum prevalence exceeding 40%. When transmission exceeded 15 infective bites per year, there were no sites with prevalence rates < 50%. Annual EIRs of 200 or greater were consistently associated with prevalence rates > 80%. The basic relationship between EIR and P. falciparum prevalence, which likely holds in east and west Africa, and across different ecologic zones, shows convincingly that substantial reductions in malaria prevalence are likely to be achieved only when EIRs are reduced to levels less than 1 infective bite per person per year. The analysis also highlights that the EIR is a more direct measure of transmission intensity than traditional measures of malaria prevalence or hospital-based measures of infection or disease incidence. As such, malaria field programs need to consider both entomologic and clinical assessments of the efficacy of transmission control measures.  (+info)

Surveillance for acute pesticide-related illness during the Medfly eradication program--Florida, 1998. (7/579)

The Mediterranean fruit fly (Medfly) (Ceratitis capitata, Wiedemann) is an exotic insect that can damage approximately 250 fruit and vegetable plant species and is a serious threat to domestic agriculture. During the spring and summer of 1998, pesticides were used by federal and state agriculture authorities to eradicate Medfly infestations that had been detected in portions of five Florida counties (Table 1). This report summarizes surveillance data, describes probable and possible cases of illness associated with the eradication effort, and provides recommendations for future Medfly-eradication programs.  (+info)

Pathology and epizootiology of Entomophaga maimaiga infections in forest Lepidoptera. (8/579)

The insect-pathogenic fungal pathogen Entomophaga maimaiga is endemic to northeastern Asia and was first found in North America in 1989. Due to repeated epizootics and spread within populations of the major forest defoliator in northeastern North America, the gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar), this pathogen has gained much notoriety. Although this pathogen was purposely introduced to North America for biological control of L. dispar in 1910 to 1911, it is questionable whether it became established at the time of release and then remained at innocuous levels until relatively recently. Alternatively, the fungal strain present in North America today could be a more recent accidental introduction. DNA analysis demonstrates that this pathogen differs significantly from North American members of the same species complex (the Lepidoptera-specific Entomophaga aulicae species complex), and, to date, isolates of this introduced pathogen display little heterogeneity in North America. Nonsusceptible lepidopteran larvae have been identified, and either E. maimaiga is unable to penetrate the cuticle or the fungus cannot survive within the hemocoel. In the latter case, although E. maimaiga grows as protoplasts lacking cell walls in the host hemolymph, glycoproteins on plasma membranes of the protoplasts could lead to host recognition. Epizootiological studies demonstrate a clear association between fungal activity and environmental moisture but little association with host density under hypothesized conditions of high fungal density. Prediction of the occurrence of epizootics is not yet possible. E. maimaiga is easily established in new areas by releasing azygospores, but the ability to use this pathogen further for biological control will depend, in large part, on the development of mass production systems.  (+info)

Abstract In this paper, the application of perceived voice quality prediction in Quality of Service (QoS) control techniques for Voice over IP (VoIP) is investigated and an improved quality of service control technique has been proposed. Here, the perceived speech quality is used as a control metric to control the send behavior (i.e. the sender bit rate of codecs) instead of using traditional individual network parameters (e.g. packet loss, jitter or delay) for QoS control. Finally, a combined control scheme which combines the strength of adaptive bit rate control and priority marking control is investigated.. Introduction. Packet voice technology uses the existing data networks for offering voice. Since packet networks offer the capability for multiplexing, voice packets travel over the Internet just as data packets do. But in the case of packet switched networks, delay becomes an important issue. The perceived quality of a voice call is delay sensitive. The time sensitive voice packets and the ...

Author Summary Sand fly control is one of the main priorities of the Visceral Leishmaniasis (VL) Elimination Program in Bangladesh, India and Nepal. Currently, indoor residual spraying with insecticides (IRS) is the most effective method available for sand fly control. The efficacy of other methods of vector control remains poorly understood. To reach elimination, these additional techniques need to be explored in order to complement IRS or replace it if it is unavailable. In this multi-country study we investigated the efficacy, safety and cost of lime wash of household walls plus treatment of sand fly breeding places with bleach (EM), insecticide impregnated durable wall lining (DWL), and bed net impregnation with slow release insecticide (ITN) for sand fly control in the Indian sub-continent. Among these vector control methods, we found DWL to be the most effective tool for sand fly control followed by ITN. DWL and ITN should be considered, in addition to IRS, for sand fly control by the VL

An integrated optimization and control technique performs process control and optimization using stochastic optimization similar to the manner in which biological immune systems work, and thus without the use of historical process models that must be created prior to placing the control and optimization routine in operation within a plant. In particular, an integrated optimization and control technique collects various indications of process control states during the on-line operation of the process, and stores these process control states within a memory. During steady-state operation of the process, the integrated optimization and control technique attempts to optimize the process operation by developing a series of sets of process control inputs to be provided to the process, wherein the series of process control inputs may be developed from the stored process control states using an objective function that defines a particular optimality criteria to be used in optimizing the operation of the process

Until recently, bed bugs have been considered uncommon in the industrialized world. This study determined the extent of reemerging bed bug infestations in homeless shelters and other locations in Toronto, Canada. Toronto Public Health documented complaints of bed bug infestations from 46 locations in 2003, most commonly apartments (63%), shelters (15%), and rooming houses (11%). Pest control operators in Toronto (N = 34) reported treating bed bug infestations at 847 locations in 2003, most commonly single-family dwellings (70%), apartments (18%), and shelters (8%). Bed bug infestations were reported at 20 (31%) of 65 homeless shelters. At 1 affected shelter, 4% of residents reported having bed bug bites. Bed bug infestations can have an adverse effect on health and quality of life in the general population, particularly among homeless persons living in shelters.
Abstract. In this study, we evaluate the effect of participatory Ecohealth interventions on domestic reinfestation of the Chagas disease vector Triatoma dimidiata after village-wide suppression of the vector population using a residual insecticide. The study was conducted in the rural community of La Brea, Guatemala between 2002 and 2009 where vector infestation was analyzed within a spatial data framework based on entomological and socio-economic surveys of homesteads within the village. Participatory interventions focused on community awareness and low-cost home improvements using local materials to limit areas of refuge and alternative blood meals for the vector within the home, and potential shelter for the vector outside the home. As a result, domestic infestation was maintained at ≤ 3% and peridomestic infestation at ≤ 2% for 5 years beyond the last insecticide spraying, in sharp contrast to the rapid reinfestation experienced in earlier insecticide only interventions.

Among the factors that may affect horses reactivity to external stimuli are pesticides used for fly control in equine facilities. The organophosphorus (OP) insecticide tetrachlorvinphos (TCVP) is used as a feed-through larvicide to prevent completion of the fly larval life cycle in horse manure. TCVP exerts its effect by inhibiting the enzyme cholinesterase (ChE) leading to the accumulation of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (AChE) in synapses of the central and peripheral nervous systems. The aim of the present study was to investigate alterations of whole-blood ChE levels associated with feeding a commercially ...
Bed bugs are largely resistant to various pesticides including DDT and organophosphates.[13][14] Most populations have developed a resistance to pyrethroid insecticides. Although now often ineffective, the resistance to pyrethroid allows for new chemicals that work in different ways to be investigated, so chemical management can continue to be one part in the resolving of bed bug infestations.[15] There is growing interest in both synthetic pyrethroid and the pyrrole insecticide, chlorfenapyr. Insect growth regulators, such as hydroprene (Gentrol), are also sometimes used.[16] Populations in Arkansas have been found to be highly resistant to DDT, with an LD50 of more than 100,000 ppm.[17] DDT was seen to make bed bugs more active in studies conducted in Africa.[18] Bed bug pesticide-resistance appears to be increasing dramatically. Bed bug populations sampled across the U.S. showed a tolerance for pyrethroids several thousand times greater than laboratory bed bugs.[19] New York City bed bugs ...

In fact, according to the Bugs without Borders study, 89 percent of pest professionals report treating bed bug infestations in single-family homes, and 88 percent report treating bed bug infestations in apartments/condos. Respondents also report other common areas, with 67 percent treating bed bug infestations in hotels/motels, 35 percent in college dormitories, 9 percent on various modes of transportation, 5 percent in laundry facilities, and 4 percent in movie theatres ...

Health care facilities experience a constant inflow of people and their belongings, and can expect bed bugs to be introduced from time to time. Hospitals, hospices, elder care facilities and group homes house sleeping people. It is this characteristic that makes them places where bed bug populations can, if left unchecked, grow, spread and impact staff, visitors and patients.. Confirming a bed bug infestation is the first step toward controlling them. When bed bugs are suspected, specimens should be collected and submitted to a pest management professional qualified to identify them. Many people show no skin markings at all, and the elderly and immune-compromised are known to experience lesser reactions to bites. Caregivers, laundry & maintenance staff should be trained to recognize and report bed bugs and their signs.. When bed bugs are suspected or confirmed, immediately and directly notify a designated authority for the facility.The longer an infestation goes unchecked, the more costly it may ...

From sprays to covers, we provide a list of do it yourself bed bug killer, control of bed bugs & how to control bed bugs treatments to kill and get rid of bed bug infestations.. Bed bugs are one of the most terrifying home pests in existence, and consequently infested homes often have a negative stigma attached to them, due to the lack of understanding about the insects and their origin. In the past, the bedbug population was nearly eliminated with the effective, but incredibly toxic chemical DDT. After DDT use was banned by the government, the bed bug population rose dramatically due to the influx of international travel. Once an infestation takes place, it s incredibly difficult and expensive to properly and thoroughly exterminate the bugs. That is way detection services are the key way to prevent bedbugs. If you are living in an urban environment where you and your neighbor are separated by a brick wall, you should be especially concerned about bug control. Here are ...

However, there are several methods to kill bed bugs. You must determine which of them is the best for you before doing the elimination. While pictures of bed bugs could ensure if they are indeed the pests that you have to deal with, the right bed bug treatment will secure your home from their re-infestation.. Three of the most popular bed bug treatment methods are the heat treatment, hiring of bed bug exterminators and the use of bed bug sprays.. Heat Treatment. This method basically uses high temperature to kill bed bugs. To get this done, some use the process of steaming the area infested while others implement thermal treatment.. Though slightly different in the way they are executed, the same principle applies to both steaming and thermal treatment. That is the higher the temperature the shorter the time needed to kill the pests.. There is one problem with heat treatment though - it could cause fire accidents. There were already a number of fire incidents reported to have been caused by ...

Based on the application of the direct injection for per detector (DI) input technique, a new readout structure for the infrared (IR) focal-plane-array (FPA), called the variable gain direct inject per detector (VGDI) is proposed and analyzed. The readout circuit of VGDI of a unit cell of photo- voltaic sensor under investigation, is composed of a direct inject per detector circuit, high gain amplifier, and the reset switch. The VGDI readout chip has been designed in 0.5 micrometer double-poly-double-metal (DPDM) n-well CMOS technology in various formats from 8 X 8 to 128 X 128. The simulation 8 X 8 VGDI of the readout chip have successfully verified both the readout function and performance. The high gain, low power, high sensitivity readout performances are achieved in a 50 X 50 micrometer2 pixel size ...
A new control technique known as inverted error deviation (IED) control is incorporated into the main DC-link capacitor voltage regulation algorithm of a three-level neutral-point diode clamped (NPC) inverter-based shunt active power filter (SAPF) to enhance its performance in overall DC-link voltage regulation so as to improve its harmonics mitigation performances. In the SAPF controller, DC-link capacitor voltage regulation algorithms with either the proportional-integral (PI) or fuzzy logic control (FLC) technique have played a significant role in maintaining a constant DC-link voltage across the DC-link capacitors. However, both techniques are mostly operated based on a direct voltage error manipulation approach which is insufficient to address the severe DC-link voltage deviation that occurs during dynamic-state conditions. As a result, the conventional algorithms perform poorly with large overshoot, undershoot, and slow response time. Therefore, the IED control technique is proposed to precisely
Fig. 7 Two-dimensional plot of track curvature versus centroid velocity.. In the drug environment, the worm is classified as active, semiactive, or inactive as demonstrated in Fig. 4, and the plot is accordingly segregated into the three areas of activity. We are primarily interested in combinations that induce inactivity in the worm. (A) In iteration 1, two combinations (that is, P1 and T3) are able to make the worm inactive. Besides in P3, the active worm does not succumb to any other combination and is classified as being active. (B) In iteration 2, only P1 makes the worm inactive. The rest of the combinations do not seem to affect the active worm. (C) In iteration 3, the worm is in a semiactive or active state for all combinations. (D) In iteration 4, three combinations (T1, T2, and T3) are able to make the worm inactive, and the winning combination is chosen as T3. ...
The most obvious factor when attempting to keep track of Bed Bug infestations in apartment and condo units is that Bed Bugs quite simply traverse from one unit to another. Bed Bugs are aware of our natural heat, CO2, not forgetting pheromones given off by people. Once a colony has found a point when it no longer has a food source that can keep it alive, break away bugs move on to the next unit by way of the walls and unsealed bottom plates,to the promise of sources of food in the adjacent unit.. Many families try unworkable home remedies for Bed Bugs or more troublesome measures- such as throwing out their Bed Bug-infested mattresses and bedding, and usually ripping out carpet and replacing furniture to rid Bed Bugs from their home! While this course of action seem to be understandable ways of behaving this isnt an advised to go into the walls, under the baseboards or any other suitable place.

False colour scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head of a tsetse fly Glossina morsitans, a large bloodsucking fly of tropical Africa. The tsetse fly transmits a parasitic protozoan called Trypanosoma, of which T. gambiense and T. rhodesiense are the agents of sleeping sickness in humans. Both male & female are bloodsuckers. Their habitat is varied, ranging from forest to river bank to savannah. Unlike most flies the tsetse gives birth to fully developed larvae, which immediately pupate. The female nurtures one larva at a time, with a total of 8-10 per lifetime. Control of the tsetse is by destruction of their habitat. Mag: X32 at 10x8, X5 at 35mm.

Both house and stable flies can transmit disease and infection. They also play a key role in the development of cutaneous habronemiasis, commonly referred to as summer sores. These nasty, weeping skin lesions are a reaction to the migration of larval stages of two types of stomach worms (Habronema muscae and Draschia megastoma). When infected flies feed on a wound or abrasion, the worm larvae are transferred and cause the lesions.. Both house and stable flies utilize manure as a breeding ground for larvae development. It takes only seven to ten days for house flies to develop from an egg to an adult; stable flies require anywhere from fifteen days to five weeks to develop. Mounting Your Defense. The more you lean about these annoying, disease-spreading flies, the more you want to defend your horse.

m with a bed bug infestation, and not only that, there was this huge article in the newspaper about the problem at this hotel, and further went on to say that they were not cooperating with the court, and were in fact, in contempt of court for not cleaning the place up. Well, we went to the office to tell them about our bites, and they had their exterminator come to the room and upon further inspection, there were bed bugs in the mattress. Since hotels dont give refunds and we paid for a week, we were stuck there, They had their exterminator spray and fumigate and assured us the bugs would be gone. The next morning, I was covered with even more bites, it was worse than the previous night, its like the chemicals caused the bed bugs to go into a frenzy! I went to the office and demanded my money back, which they did, but what made me so upset is the clerk/owner said they had never had a problem there with bed bugs and implied that we brought the bed bugs there, when she knows good and well they ...
Conenose bugs are nocturnal and may be attracted to nighttime lights. In this way, solitary individuals may enter a home. A single conenose bug in the home is not necessarily cause for alarm. However the presence of nymphs (unwinged bugs) or numerous adult conenose bugs in your home suggested that a breeding population may be established nearby. Under these circumstances control may be justified.. Conenose bug infestations are likely to be more common in poorly constructed homes. Good sanitation and tight building construction tends to limit conenose bug infestations. Destroy trash piles, bird and animal nests and burrows. Control and exclude rodents and birds from the house. Seal exterior cracks and openings into buildings and keep chimney flues closed tightly. Inspect and seal any openings from crawl spaces into the house sub-flooring. Check pets for signs of feeding and examine pet houses.. Insecticides can effectively control conenose bugs. Treat room corners and edges, window and door ...

Dealing with a bed bug infestation is a challenge. The EcoRaider team recognizes that infestation cases vary, and the methods used to attack a pest problem might be more effective for one particular household over another. Customer feedback helps us access what problems people are having with the EcoRaider treatment and how we can best help them find solutions. Recently, a customer sent in a few questions about the fertility cycle of bed bugs and how to eradicate future generations of bugs. 1. Does exposure to Ecoraider decrease bed bug fertility?. It is unlikely one will be able to spray all the existing adults and eggs during one treatment. The adults that survive will continue laying eggs and eggs will hatch.. 2. As in, if they are exposed to the product while climbing onto my bed to bite me will females still be able to lay eggs after getting that blood meal? (Bed bug eggs hatch every 10-14 days).. According to a study done at Washington State University, exposure to EcoRaider does inhibit ...

Further details about the negotiations:. At 7:28 am on Sunday, 10 December 2000, the delegates in Johannesburg, South Africa, approved a treaty allowing for the continued use of DDT in disease vector control as the United Nations Environment Program concluded the fifth and FINAL round of negotiations on a treaty to ban persistent organic pollutants. The official mandate of the treaty was to reduce and/or eliminate twelve POPs, of which DDT was one. This led groups such as Greenpeace, World Wildlife Fund, Physicians for Social Responsibilty and over 300 other environmental organizations to advocate for a total DDT ban, starting as early as 2007 in some cases. Although the open letter you signed made considerable progress in persuading these environmental groups to change their views, it was only the diplomats and delegates of 120 countries at the Johannesburg negotiations who could take the final decision. I am delighted to report to you that They decided that DDT is a unique case, and whereas ...

  • Normally, they are not considered major insect pests of greenhouse crops. (
  • While there is still some lack of knowledge on the specific responses to cold by certain museum insect pests, enough is known to establish guidelines for treatment (Strang, 1992 ). (
  • Cooling a room below +15°C is often very effective in slowing or stopping the growth, feeding, and breeding of museum insect pests, and can be used as a temporary measure to help combat an infestation (Strang, 1992 ). (
  • However, most museum insect pests must be cooled to well below 0°C to reduce the time of exposure needed to completely kill the insects populating the object within a reasonably short time (Strang, 1992 ). (
  • As far as is known, common museum insect pests are neither sufficiently freeze tolerant nor freeze avoidant to withstand the low temperatures recommended for eradication (Strang, 1992 ). (
  • A major guideline to follow when using freezing to control insect pests is to expose them to temperatures that drop as low as possible, as quickly as possible, for as long as possible. (
  • In practice, the most effective freezer systems for killing insect pests operate between −30°C and −40°C. However, common household deep-freezers operating between −20°C and −25°C can be very effective, and are usually less expensive than commercial freezers. (

  • Beneficial insects are those that eat other insects that are garden pests. (
  • Hunter supreme the Praying Mantis eats a variety of pests including other insects, caterpillars, and beetles. (
  • Research areas could include, but are not limited to, biology and behavior of invasive pests/weeds and their biological control agents, biotic and abiotic determinants of invasion success, ecological interactions of pests and natural enemies at the community level, pre- and post-invasion/release genetics and evolution of pests and natural enemies, and the landscape and spatial ecology of pest impacts and natural enemy efficacy.
