Area(s) of expertise:

Pest Population Biology, Ecology and Management

As Extension Entomologist for the State of Wyoming, my goal is to provide state residents with up-to-date, research-based, efficient, economic and environmentally acceptable tools for arthropod pest management. One of the main areas of my outreach activities in this domain is educating people in the West on best ways to control rangeland grasshoppers and other pests. To learn more, please visit UW Extension Entomology, and UW Grasshoppers of Wyoming and the West.

My group includes Assistant Extension Entomologist Scott Schell, Wyoming State Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey Coordinator Larry DeBrey, CAPS Data Manager Cindy Legg, School IPM Specialist John Connett and graduate students Bryan StevensDouglas Smith, and Wahid Dakhel.

Research interests:

  • Biology and ecology of main arthropod pests of Wyoming, including rangeland, horticultural, forest, urban, and crop pests.
  • Methods of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in Western High Plains.
  • Biology, ecology, population dynamics, and management strategies of grasshoppers and locusts.
  • Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Sciences (GIS) applications in insect ecology and pest management.
  • Environmental impact of pest management programs, including the influence on the non-target terrestrial arthropods.
  • Diapause, migrations and other adaptations in insect life strategies.
  • Phase variation in locusts.
  • Conservation of rare and endangered Orthoptera species.
  • History of entomology.
  • International aspects of pest management.
