The kudzu bug or bean plataspid, Megacopta cribraria (Fabricius), is native to Asia where it appears to be widely distributed (although the taxonomy is not entirely clear), but is infrequently a pest of legumes. This bug appeared in 2009 in the southeastern United States, where it is closely associated with kudzu, Pueraria montana Lour. [Merr.] variety(More)
We propose that delayed predator-prey models may provide superficially acceptable predictions for spurious reasons. Through experimentation and modelling, we offer a new approach: using a model experimental predator-prey system (the ciliates Didinium and Paramecium), we determine the influence of past-prey abundance at a fixed delay (approx. one generation)(More)
1 This publication was developed to provide a summary of information about common boll-feeding bugs (heteropteran pests), stress proper identification of these pests, and acquaint the reader with the recommended strategies for management of boll-feeding bugs in cotton. The first section of this publication emphasizes the recent importance of boll-feeding(More)
The anticipated release of Enlist TM cotton, corn, and soybean cultivars likely will increase the use of 2,4-D, raising concerns over potential injury to susceptible cotton. An experiment was conducted at 12 locations over 2013 and 2014 to determine the impact of 2,4-D at rates simulating drift (2 g ae ha À1) and tank contamination (40 g ae ha À1) on cotton(More)
