Pimp that wasp: Nasonia vitripennis genetic engineering for better biocontrol
In the molecular lab at entomology we use for our studies a rather unusual model organism, the parasitoid wasp Nasonia vitripennis. We focus on the use of Nasonia to investigate sex determination, memory development and insect-ba ...

Host location by hyperparasitoids
We found that hyperparsitoids, the fourth trophic level enemies of parasitoids, find their host (larvae or pupae of parasitoids) by using herbivore induced plant volatiles (HIPVs). The HIPVs of plants damaged by parasitized and un ...

Internship at Deliflor: Chrysantemum resistance to aphids
Deliflor Chrysanten breeds and propagates chrysanthemum varieties. Chrysanthemum growers have more and more problems with phloem feeding insect pests. Since insecticides have adverse effects on the environment and are being restri ...

Can An Omnivorous Insect Alters The Behaviour Of Its Conspecifics By Changing The Quality Of The Shared Plants (NEW)
Omnivores have strong potential to be widely used as biocontrol agents for pests in different crops. As omnivores, they feed both on plants and herbivore pests. The unique advantage of omnivorous predators is that they can establi ...

Intercropping increases biocontrol by enhancing honeydew availability and quality
Intercropping has often shown improved biological control compared to monoculture. However, these effects are not consistent and appear to be context and species-dependent. In order to achieve more reliable outcomes, a better unde ...

Insectenbiodiversiteit in een intercropping systeem t.b.v. bestrijding van de bonenvlieg (Pixelfarming robotics - Ardo)
De Nederlandse bonenteelt wordt momenteel bedreigd door de larven van de bonenvlieg (Delia platura). Door het wegvallen van de chemische zaadcoating in 2021 zijn de zaden niet meer beschermt tegen vraat van de larven waardoor de t ...

Genetic and environmental influence on color in ladybird beetles
Ladybird beetles are often brightly colored, likely mainly to advertise their untasteful or even toxic properties to potential predators. Across and within species, color patterns vary wildly. Especially the exotic ladybird beetle ...

eDNA as a new tool to determine host contacts of ticks and mosquitoes
Mosquitoes and ticks can transmit various pathogens, for example Zika virus and tick-borne encephalitis virus. Knowing what hosts are used by mosquitoes and ticks is important to understand the transmission cycle of these pathogen ...
