This project includes research on three pests, mirids, stinkbugs and solenopsis mealybug. The project objectives are listed below:
1. Investigate solenopsis mealybug damage in Bollgard II cotton
2. Explore management options for mealybug
3. Develop improved monitoring techniques for mirids (sample size vs precision)
4. Determine temperature effects on mirid feeding
5. Investigate IPM-compatible management options for mirids and stinkbugs
6. Investigate cotton stainer damage in Bollgard II (develop threshold)
7. Investigate causal agents of boll rot and potential links with bug transmitted pathogens
