We focus on the biology and management of economically important insects. This includes invasive pests such as spotted wing Drosophila, and native pests such as blueberry stem gall wasp. Pollination is also critical for production of most berry crops, and we are investigating the ecology and management of wild bees and honey bees, and developing Integrated Crop Pollination strategies for sustainable fruit production. We conduct evaluations of insecticide efficacy in laboratory, greenhouse, research station, and farm settings to guide our IPM recommendations for berry crop growers.
