Of fire ants, microorganisms and egg dispenser machinery: Sharing your entomological expertise through research

Sandra Woolfolk,, Mississippi State University, Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology, Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology, Mississippi State University, Mississippi State, MS

As a student, there are many ways we can give back to society (i.e., Entomological Society of America), in a narrower range, and to our community, in a broader range. One of them is by being involved in various research in addition to your own research. I will discuss my involvement in research with a fellow graduate student on biology of ambrosia beetle and with an engineering professor on constructing machinery for dispensing green lacewing eggs. Without limiting my scope to entomology, I will also discuss my work on some plant pathology related projects.

Species 1: Hymenoptera Formicidae Solenopsis invicta
Species 2: Neuroptera Chrysopidae Chrysoperla rufilabris
Species 3: Coleoptera Curculionidae Xylosandrus mutilatus
