    The Hessian fly (HF), Mayetiola destructor (Say), has been a periodical pest in Kansas for the past 100+ years (Dean and McCulloch, 1915). Plant resistance and insecticide seed treatments are the best and most consistent ...
  • Miller, Haley; Abbar, Salahe; Phillips, Thomas (2017-12-7)
    Tyrophagus putrescentiae is a mite that is most commonly found in stored food, like different cheese products. This mite infests high-value dried foods that results in serious economic impact. Human health problems are ...
  • Strassburg, Melissa; Strassburg, Meghan; Phillips, Thomas (2017-12-7)
    Red flour beetles are major pests in the U.S. They can often be found in stored grain products, primarily flour [4]. They also seem to be heavily attracted to maize, another popular food source in many areas [1]. The red ...
  • Conner, Mary A.; Herrick, Nathan J.; Cloyd, Raymond A. (2017-12-7)
    Western flower thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis (Perg.), is a major insect pest of greenhouse production systems. A widely-used plant protection strategy is biological control, which entails releasing natural enemies; ...
  • Haman, Colter; Beals, Brendan; Park, Yoonseong (2017-12-7)
    Survival of questing ticks in the filed depends on uptaking water from environment. With there being little known about the amount of water that ticks consume, we were interested in whether drinking water is a common ...
  • Wicoff, Clara; Campbell, James; Scheff, Deanna (2017-12-7)
    At the global level, approximately one-third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted each year. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, more than 40 percent of food losses ...
  • Strassburg, Meghan; Strassburg, Melissa; Phillips, Thomas (2017-12-7)
    Mites can be a major pest in our foods—especially ham and cheese. (US Fed News Service) Currently, there is a huge interest for reducing our impact on the ozone layer, so researchers are looking at ways to prevent pests ...
  • Calbreath, Jackson; Marshall, Jeremy L.; Michaud, J.P. (2017-12-7)
    In the year 2015, the USA produced 597 Million bushels of sorghum and planted 7.85 million acres. Kansas produced 281.6 million bushels and planted 3.2 million acres. With Green bug aphid and the sugarcane aphid a major ...
  • Boyer, Matthew; Marshall, Jeremy
    Studying insects’ response to disturbance can tell us how these organisms survive in hostile environments. Studies have shown that soldier beetles can have different mating behaviors depending on the species around them ...
  • Iacovetti, Victoria; Marshall, Jeremy L. (2017-12-7)
    Sleep deprivation is very common among college students, hitting 73% with sleep problems, according to “Regents of the University of Michigan.” To study the causes of sleep deprivation, I surveyed fifty students at Kansas ...
  • Stewart, Nathan; Marshall, Jeremy
    This research project was set up to determine the suitability of two extreme diets. Since this experiment only used basic extremes, some of the data were already known, or assumed, such as that a flour beetle can survive ...
  • Dostal, Elyse; Enders, Laramy; Smith, C. Michael
    Damage from aphids to wheat plants is noticeable from a distance and can result in water stress, reduced plant growth and wilting. Different aphids are said to cause different colorations when damaging the plants. The ...
  • Pfannenstiel, Luke; Phillips, Thomas W.
    Insects are known to be able to see different wavelengths of lights than humans can see. Because of this, there has been a lot of research done into using light to prevent damage caused by storedproduct pests. Common pests ...
  • Alexander, Lindsey; Marshall, Jeremy L. (2017-12-7)
    The Tribolium castaneum genome sequence contains a large number of odorant receptor (Or) genes when compared to the olfactory genomes of other insects (Engsontia et al., 2007). Evolved populations of the red flour beetle ...
  • Bordewick, Megan; Marshall, Jeremy L. (2017-12-7)
    When we look at zoo animals, we only see them for a couple of minutes at most. We do not see how active they really are, nor do we get a good representation of their behavior (Szokalski et al 2012; Allen et al. 2015). Cats ...
  • Mueting, Megan; Marshall, Jeremy L. (2017-12-7)
    I wanted to do a study on how people learn best because I think it’s important for instruction to be effective for productive learning. A lot of professors or future teachers need to know what style of class will work best ...
