Abstract Mortality of larval, pupal, and adult western cherry fruit fly, Rhagoletis indifferens (Tephritidae) exposed to the steinernematid nematodes Steinernema carpocapsae, Steinernema feltiae, andExpand
Courtship behavior of the mosquitoSabethes cyaneus (Diptera: Culicidae)
Unlike any other mosquito reported, Sabethes cyaneus(Fabricius) displays an elaborate courtship before and during copulation. A male approaches a female suspended from a horizontal stick, suspendsExpand
Mortality of different life stages of Rhagoletis indifferens (Diptera: Tephritidae) exposed to the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae.
Effects of the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae (Metschnikoff) Sorokin on the mortality of different life stages of the western cherry fruit fly, Rhagoletis indifferens Curran (Dipter...
Tests of Sabethes cyaneus leg paddle function in mating and flight.
Both sexes of the mosquito Sabethes cyaneus have conspicuous midleg paddles of unknown function. These paddles are displayed prominently by males during courtship. However, we found that paddleExpand
Assessing the Potential for Establishment of Western Cherry Fruit Fly using Ecological Niche Modeling
ABSTRACT Sweet cherries, Prunus avium (L.) L., grown in the western United States are exported to many countries around the world. Some of these countries have enforced strict quarantine rules andExpand
Evaluating correlative and mechanistic niche models for assessing the risk of pest establishment
Insect pests pose a great threat to global food security. Improved methods for assessment of the risk of pest establishment are needed to enhance informed decision-making, to develop cost-effectiveExpand

ABSTRACT Drosophila suzukii (Matsumura), an invasive pest of small and stone fruits, has been recently detected in 39 states of the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe. This pest attacksExpand
Effects of GF-120 Fruit Fly Bait Concentrations on Attraction, Feeding, Mortality, and Control of Rhagoletis indifferens (Diptera: Tephritidae)
Abstract Effects of different concentrations of GF-120 NF Naturalyte Fruit Fly Bait on attraction and feeding responses, mortality, and control of the western cherry fruit fly, Rhagoletis indifferensExpand
Daily and Seasonal Activity Patterns of Rhagoletis indifferens (Diptera: Tephritidae) in Washington State
Abstract The diurnal and seasonal activity patterns of the western cherry fruit fly, Rhagoletis indifferens Curran, were determined on three sweet cherry trees, Prunus avium (L.), from 0700 to 1900Expand
