Experiments were conducted to determine the residual efficacy of both a briquette and a granular formulation (2 rates) of a numbered spinosad compound against Psorophora columbiae larvae in small rice plots. Comparisons were also made between the numbered compounds and labeled granular and briquette formulations of methoprene. Both rates of the spinosad(More)
Two separate but related studies were conducted regarding management of Anopheles quadrimaculatus larval populations in commercial rice fields near Cleveland, MS, in 2004. Study 1 was to evaluate the effectiveness of 2 treatments of aerially applied ultra-low volume applications of Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis (Bti) against An. quadrimaculatus(More)
Assessment of chimerism after allogeneic bone marrow transplant frequently relies on PCR amplification of donor- and recipient-specific polymorphic short tandem repeats (STR) with subsequent fluorescent detection of amplicons. In vitro amplification of STR loci is often achieved through commercially available, multiplex PCR kits. While originally developed(More)
Field trials were conducted at 3 locations in Arkansas County, AR, to compare the effectiveness of 3 residential mosquito traps, the Stinger Mosquito Vacuum, the Mosquito Magnet Defender, and the Mosquito Deleto 2500 Active System, against riceland mosquitoes, specifically Anopheles quadrimaculatus and Psorophora columbiae. Both the Stinger Mosquito Vacuum(More)
