The subjects of top stories on Entomology Today in 2018 included two emerging invasive species—the spotted lanternfly (Lycorma delicatula, top left) and the Asian longhorned tick (Haemaphysalis longicornis, bottom left)—research on the efficacy, or lack thereof, of boric acid in managing bed bugs (Cimex lectularius, top right), and new suggestions for beekeepers to boost the production of propolis in their honey bee hives (Apis mellifera, bottom right) hives.
