PROGRAM OVERVIEW: The focus of our research program is to develop sound insect management strategies for vegetables, with spin-offs for others crops, using a sound understanding of insect ecological principles. This broad focus allows us the opportunity to work simultaneously in basic and applied areas on a number of important insects. Our
