The current state of managing fly pests in livestock reveals a need for better understanding of underlying economics. A group of researchers in veterinary entomology, agricultural economics, and population modeling outline what's needed to build a transdisciplinary IPM approach for controlling flies in animal production.
Meet Brandon Smythe, Ph.D., director at the Veterinary Entomology Research Laboratory at the Center for Animal Health and Food Safety located in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Smythe is the subject of the next installment of our “Standout Early Career Professionals” series.
Research at Penn State University reveals the intricate flips and twists that a fly performs to execute an inverted landing. Understanding the mechanics of the motion could help engineers design robotic fliers that land upside down, too.
