Cotesia kariyai Watanabe (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) is a specialist larval parasitoid of Mythimna separata Walker (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae). Cotesia kariyai wasps use herbivore-induced plant volatiles (HIPVs) to locate hosts. However, complex natura...

Transmission of Borrelia spp. via tick vector
Medical Entomology and Zoology   64(1) 11-15   Mar 2013   [Refereed]
Lyme disease and relapsing fever are arthropod-borne infectious diseases caused by the genus Borrelia. These infectious pathogens are maintained by wildlife reservoirs and are transmitted to humans by arthropod vectors. It is, therefore, impossibl...
Honeybee gastrointestinal bacteria for novel and sustainable disease control strategies.
Wu,Meihua;Sugimura,Yuya;Taylor,,De Mar;Yoshiyama,Mikio
Journal of Developments in Sustainable Agriculture   8(2) 85-90   2013   [Refereed]
Agricultural economic development strongly relies on the health of pollinators including honeybees. Honeybee health is afflicted by multiple risk factors such as toxicity from pesticide application, shortage of floral resources, climate change, r...
