In the effort to manage the hemlock woolly adelgid in eastern North America, two fly species deployed as biological control agents are themselves targeted by parasitoid wasps. A new study examines how these parasitoids affect the flies and other predators of the hemlock pests.
In a new study, researchers reveal how the unique stalk-eyed fruit flies develop, reproduce, and interact with each other—and their work may shed light on eye-stalk evolution among arthropods.
A new study finds three compounds derived from flowers show significant tick-repellent properties in field trials. While further evaluation for safety and effectiveness remains, the compounds could provide viable new options for products to prevent tick bites.
A tool commonly used in ophthalmology finds a new use in entomology: Observing how a moth's eye adjusts to see in both light and dark environments.
