Two Years Before the Hatch: Rootworms Adapt to Crop Rotation
TLDR
It appears that some populations of the northern corn rootworm may have adapted to crop rotation, which may be a case of an insect evolving an adaptation to a cultural practice.
Insects associated with broom snakeweed (Xanthocephalum sarothrae) and threadleaf snakeweed (Xanthocephalum microcephala) in west Texas and eastern New Mexico.
TLDR
Both broom snakeweed and threadleaf snakeweed are toxic to cattle, sheep, goats, and other animals and Andres (1971) suggested that the conservation and augmentation of endemic phytophagous insects are feasible and advantageous in many cases.
Degradation of Malathion as a Function of Grain Drying Systems
TLDR
Bioassay results with adults of the rice weevil, Sitophilus oryzae, and the red flour beetle showed that biologically active residues were present throughout the entire storage period, indicating that either malathion formulation is effective when applied immediately before or after drying at a wide range of temperatures.
Cost-benefit evaluation of house fly (Diptera:Muscidae) control in caged layer poultry houses.
TLDR
Early-season manure removal, combined with more selective insecticide use would provide the caged layer producer with a more effective management strategy for controlling house flies in small-unit operations.
Effect of Incorporation on the Efficacy of Selected Pyrethroids for Control of Black Cutworm (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
TLDR
Results of second- and fourth-instar bioassays show that second instars are more sensitive to fenvalerate and permethrin but require 89% more handling time than fourth instars and limited data suggest that incorporation also affects cyfluthrin and esfenvalerate adversely.
Seasonal food habits of a desert termite Gnathamitermes tubiformans, in West Texas.
The diet of Gnathamitermes tubiformans (Buckley) consisted primarily of 3 grass species, Aristida longiseta Steud., red three-awn; Buchloe dactyloides (Null.) Englm., bulfalograss; and Bouteloua
