Integrated Pest Management
Integrated Pest Management Integrated pest management (IPM) is a recently developed technology for pest control that is aimed at achieving the desired control while reducing the use of pesticides. To accomplish this, various combinations of chemical, biological, and physical controls are employed. In the past, pesticides were all too often applied routinely whether needed or not. With IPM, pest populations as well as beneficial parasite and predator populations are monitored to determine whether

Butterfly
A butterfly is a mainly day-flying insect of the order Lepidoptera, which includes the butterflies and moths. Like other holometabolous insects, the butterfly's life cycle consists of four parts: egg, larva, pupa and adult. Most species are diurnal. Butterflies have large, often brightly coloured wings, and conspicuous, fluttering flight. Butterflies comprise the true butterflies (superfamily Papilionoidea), the skippers (superfamily Hesperioidea) and the moth-butterflies (superfamily Hedyloidea

These beetles are known to feed and develop on the seeds of legumes (Life Cycle of Bean Beetles). The adult of these beetles do not require food or water, they often spend their lives mating and laying eggs on the beans; the larvae

Bioinformatics Introduction When the Human Genome Project was begun in 1990 it was understood that to meet the project\'s goals, the speed of DNA sequencing would have to increase and the cost would have to come down. Over the life of the project virtually every aspect of DNA sequencing was improved. It took the project approximately four years to sequence its first one billion bases but just four months to sequence the second billion bases. During the month of January, 2003, 1.5 billion bases

Hypothesis/Introduction Bean beetles, in the genus Callosobruchus, are agricultural pests found in tropical and Subtropical regions of Africa and Asia. They are pests of legume seeds (family Fabaceae) such as Mung beans (Vigna radiata) and black-eyes peas (also called cowpeas, Vigna unguiculata). The adults

Bean beetles are insects or crop pests found in tropical regions of Africa and Asia (CCNY Lab Manual, 2004). They lay eggs on the surface of bean seeds such as mung beans (vigna radiata) or black eyed peas (vigna unguiculata), hence their n

Alessio Belaj Partner: Jennifer Rodriguez Heriberto Moran July 11th, 2017 The effect of Food Source on Esterase Activity in Bean Beetles Abstract/Hypothesis: Beans are one of the most harvested crop for humans to consume. However, there have been issues with harvesting them, hindering our chances of consuming beans. It is known that bean beetles litter our bean crops, leaving the crops susceptible to death. Bean beetles, in the genus Callosobruchus, are agricultural pests found in tropical and
