Current And Past Research Projects

Current Research Projects:

  • Growth and reproductive performance of rangeland beef-cattle as influenced by controlled and uncontrolled populations of horn flies
  • Establishing baseline susceptibility of multiple horn fly strains to select active ingredients
  • Evaluating the synergistic effects of piperonyl butoxide on permethrin resistant and susceptible horn flies exposed to lambda-cyhalothrin
  • Establishing on-animal methods to evaluate compounds aimed at repelling horn fly infestations in a controlled environment
  • Evaluating horn fly tolerance to permethrin under various levels of induced starvation
  • Evaluating various insecticide baits against multiple house fly populations under laboratory conditions
