Red imported fire ants and native ants may depress the emergence of sea turtle hatchlings, especially in nests near dune vegetation. A new study examines the interactions of ants with sea turtle nests and offers recommendations for reducing ant-related risks in sea turtle conservation.
Biosecurity research at Kansas State University adds to the chorus of studies showing mosquitoes and other insects are not biological vectors of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Here's a look at how that research is conducted.
Spider mites may adapt to uncertain environments by successfully inbreeding and by adjusting reproductive resources, a new study shows. The findings may help entomologists better understand and manage invasions by other haplodiploid arthropods.
Collaboration and a combination of transgenic cotton and sterile insect releases helped to eradicate the invasive pink bollworm.
