Another Study Confirms Mosquitoes, Midges Don’t Transmit Coronavirus
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.
Flexible Reproduction ‘Mite’ Explain Invasion Success
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.
How Science Wiped Out the Invasive Pink Bollworm in the U.S.
Collaboration and a combination of transgenic cotton and sterile insect releases helped to eradicate the invasive pink bollworm.
Let’s Get Together: How Invasion Ecology and Biological Control Can Improve Collaboration
A new research review finds communication between invasion ecologists and biological control experts tends to go one way, highlighting opportunities for invasion ecologists to benefit more from biocontrol publications and datasets.
