Soybean aphid, Aphis glycines Matsumura, is one of the most important insect pests of soybean in the north central United States. Management of A. glycines currently relies on applications of broad-spectrum insecticides. However, broad-spectrum insecticides can negatively impact the natural enemies associated with aphids. Selective insecticides, on the(More)
The soybean aphid, Aphis glycines Matsumura, is an economically important soybean pest. Many studies have demonstrated that predatory insects are important in suppressing A. glycines population growth. However, to improve the utilization of predators in A. glycines management, sampling plans need to be developed and validated for predators. Aphid predators(More)
In this paper, a simple design of locomotive module for snake-mimetic robots has been proposed. The proposal relies solely on the concept of modular design which states a multi-degree-of-freedom (MDOF) snake-mimetic robot can be constituted basing upon a basic module that has only two or three DOF. It is clear that, a series of linked locomotive modules can(More)
