Standard metabolic rate of the fire ant, Solenopsis invicta Buren: effects of temperature, mass, and caste.
Temperature and mass effects on respiratory quotient (RQ), as well as accurate transformation of O(2) consumption to metabolic rate (&mgr;W) for comparison with other ant species, are examined.

The discontinuous gas exchange cycle (DGC), the cyclic release of CO(2) and uptake of O(2), were investigated in workers and female and male alates of the red imported fire ant, Solenopsis invicta
Effects of Temperature and Season on Foraging Activity of Red Imported Fire Ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in Oklahoma
Temperature and seasonal effects on foraging activity of Solenopsis invicta Buren (red imported fire ant) in Oklahoma were investigated by periodically quantifying the number of ants captured in baited vials for 2 yr, suggesting recommendations for timing of insecticidal bait applications against S.invicta that are appropriate in more southern portions of the fire ant range may not be appropriate for Oklahoma.
Identification and action of juvenile hormone III from sexually mature alate females of the red imported fire ant, Solenopsis invicta.
The results indicated that JH was important to dealation in alates treated with precocene II, and it appears that the mechanism of dealation that occurs when female alates are out of the influence of their queen is different from the one associated with mating flights.
This study reports dispersal of flies of the Las Flores biotype, first released in spring, 2002 in a grazed pasture (Knox site) in Clay Co., MS, and further releases, with the same protocol, were made during spring 2002 and 2003, about 8.8 km and 149.70 SE of the Knox site.
Efficacy of Three Citrus Oil Formulations Against Solenopsis invicta Buren (Hymenoptera: Formicidae), the Red Imported Fire Ant 1,2
Experiments were conducted in Alabama, Oklahoma, and Texas to assess efficacy of raw citrus peel extract (orange oil) and a commercial citrus oil formulation for control of Solenopsis invicta Buren,
Detection of Imported Fire Ant (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) Mounds with Satellite Imagery
Satellite imagery (0.65-m resolution, panchromatic) was tested as a detection tool for imported fire ant mounds in northeast Mississippi pasture and predicted detection rates ranged from 24% for small mounds to 66% for large mounds, based on mound height and mound area.
Prey of the Red Imported Fire Ant (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in Oklahoma Peanuts
Abstract The red imported fire ant, Solenopsis invicta Buren, is an important predator in some cropping systems in the United States, particularly sugarcane and cotton, where it preys on key pests
Effects of Temperature on the Metabolic Rates of Insecticide Resistant and Susceptible German Cockroaches, Blattella germanica (L.) (Dictyoptera: Blattellidae)
Respiratory quotient increased with temperature up to about 25 °C, declining thereafter in all the strains; however there were differences in response among strains, and the supercooling point of the resistant strain was significantly greater than those of the ACY and black susceptible strains.
