Current Research

  • Wide area control of codling moth used mating disruption strategy.
  • Evasion of codling moth to sex pheromone.
  • Characterization of damages caused by thrips in different stages of nectarine and plum.
  • Developing programs for resistance management of pear psylla to pesticides.
  • Integrating the predator bug Anthocoris nemoralis in management control of pear psylla.
  • Developing management control strategy to control woodborer pests (Capnodis spp., Zeuzera pyrina, Cerambyx dux).
