Insect ecology and management

Our research focuses on sustainable pest control and insecticide resistance. Working closely with industry, we help develop new tools to combat insect pests, preserve biodiversity and improve biosecurity efforts.

  • Sustainable agriculture
  • Integrated pest management
  • Insecticide resistance
  • Invasion ecology
  • Biocontrol
