What does the cricket think? The influence of rearing conditions on the cognitive development of the house cricket
Environmental factors affect the cognitive development not only in large brained animals such humans and other vertebrates, but also in the compact nervous system of insects (Kotrschal and Taborsky 2010; Scotto-Lomassese et al. 20 ...

Finding novel repellents against mosquitoes
Female mosquitoes are attracted to humans and animals by odours produced by skin bacteria. Humans differ considerably in their degree of attractiveness to mosquitoes. Less attractive individuals might release lower amounts of attr ...

Foraging success of parasitoids in diverse agro-ecosystems: How to be efficient under diverse conditions?
Parasitoids are evolved to find their host in a diverse system. It is hypothesized that increased vegetation diversity will enhance their performance in the field. However, responses of parasitic wasps to habitat diversification a ...

Control of malaria mosquito pathogens
The mosquito Anopheles coluzzii transmits malaria and is, therefore, one of the most dangerous vector species in the world. In the Laboratory of Entomology, we focus on novel tools to control this mosquito. We usually produce >500 ...

Plant defence to multi herbivore attack: dealing with unpredictable insect communities
Plants interact with a large number of attackers. The arrival of these attackers may be unpredictable in terms of the species identity, the moment in time and the order in which attack may take place. It is hypothesized that plant ...

Do plants affect the outcome of parasitoid competition?
Parasitoids often compete over herbivore hosts that are used to rear offspring. Generally, a single host species is exploited by more than one parasitoid species and hence competition between parasitoids over host and larval compe ...

Melanism in ladybird beetles
A number of ladybird beetles show color polymorphism, where forms are different in the extent of melanisation of their elytra. This is likely to influence their thermal regimes, and since insects are ectothermic, may also influenc ...

Development and testing of a highly efficient odour-baited mosquito trap
The mosquito is considered the most dangerous animal in the world because mosquitoes are vectors of many human pathogens such as malaria, dengue fever, and Zika. The best way to reduce the spread of these diseases is to prevent mo ...
