About This Project

Chemical insecticides used in agriculture impose negative impacts on ecosystems and public health. My research aims to reduce reliance on chemical insecticides by clarifying the mechanisms that underlie conservation biological control (CBC). In theory, CBC increases natural pest control by providing resources for natural enemies of pests on and near farms. I will study the effect of different types of non-crop vegetation on a major pest, the Lygus bug, and its predators and parasites.
