Mosquito radar: unravelling mosquito ecology through a citizen science approach
In 2014 we launched a citizen science approach (Muggenradar, www.muggenradar.nl) with the aim to better understand the ecology of Dutch mosquitoes. Currently a follow up project on malaria mosquito's in Rwanda is carried out. The  ...

Vitamin D synthesis in insects?
The ability to synthesize vitamin D de novo under the influence of UV-B radiation is widespread in the Animal Kingdom. However, it is currently not known if insect species are able to do so. If insects are able to synthesize vitam ...

Effects of mycotoxins on the house fly Musca domestica: survival, growth and metabolic conversion
The currently described project is a part of the INSECTFEED consortium which is aiming for a sustainable circular economy in which insect production is part of an integrated food production system with zero waste and preservation  ...

Effect of water misting on lemonade wasps.
For a side project in collaboration with Wexit.bz we want to show that lemonade water misting repels wasps in a bio-friendly way to avoid nuisance in the summer months. We can design the contents of the project with the student ...

Population structure in ladybird beetles
Organisms are adapted to their local environment. This may mean that there are geographic differences in the occurrence of alleles at adaptive loci. The frequency at a particular locality of a certain adaptive allele is not only i ...

What matters more for the plant, identity of insect herbivores or of their parasitoids?
In nature, plants are attacked by multiple antagonists, from which insect herbivores are the most prominent members. Plants can recognise the identity of the insect attacker by its feeding mode and the composition on its oral secr ...

How to catch more (blood fed) mosquitoes?
Several traps are available to trap mosquitoes and thereby monitor vectors of diseases like malaria, dengue and Zika. However, these traps do not catch blood fed mosquitoes. Or did? Blood fed mosquitoes are especially interesting ...

Roots crying for help?: harnessing root microbiome to help plants fight insect attack
Description: In agriculture, insect herbivory is one of the main biotic stresses that plants face because it represents around one-fifth of global crop yield losses. One sustainable alternative to fight insect pests can be to  ...

Effect of neighbouring plants on parasitoid foraging at different spatial scales
Predatory insects and parasitoid wasps can drastically reduce herbivore densities, which makes them important biocontrol agents, but this ecosystem service is threatened by the drastic decline in insect numbers. In order to mainta ...
