|Laboratory evaluation and comparison of release rates of mating pheromones for oriental fruit moth (Grapholita molesta), pink boll worm (Pectinophora gossypeila) and gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar)
||There has been an increasing interest in more environmentally friendly alternatives to the use of pesticides in agriculture, due to health and environmental concerns. The controlled release of pheromones can be used as part of an Integrated Pest Mana...
|Rheological characteristics of aqueous wax emulsions used for the controlled release of pheromones as an alternative to the use of pesticides for insect pest management
||Most pesticides produce some risk of harm to the environment because pesticides
are designed to kill or adversely affect living organisms (US EPA, 2010). It is desirable
that alternate, safer forms of pest control be developed. One alternative is t...
|Characterizing the rheological properties of wax emulsions used as carriers for biopesticides in agricultural pest management
||The purpose of this research was to characterize the rheological properties of various wax emulsions developed as carriers for biopesticides used for agricultural pest management. Wax emulsions have been developed as carriers for the controlled relea...
