Management of Insect Pests of Ornamentals

Research Activities & Interests:

1) Spotted lanternfly (SLF) is a recently introduced pest from Asia with a very broad host range, is rapidly spreading, and is a serious pest of grape, and numerous hardwood tree species in over 20 families. We are investigating: Host preferences and performance of different life stages of SLF among common hardwood trees in the landscape and forests; dispersal; sequestration of toxins and impacts on predators, methods to sample SLF populations to determine abundance and distribution in different habitats; and impacts of SLF feeding on host tree physiology.

2) Black cherry is a highly valuable forest tree in PA, but regeneration is in decline, especially in the Allegheny National Forest. We are characterizing the pollinator communities for black cherry and evaluating how habitat (biotic and abiotic factors) influences pollination and production of viable seed for regeneration.

4) To prevent invasive, exotic pests (insects, nematodes, and fungi) from moving around the world in wood packing materials and wood products, international regulations require these materials to be properly treated before they can be shipped out of the country of origin. As a member of the International Forestry Quarantine Research Group, an advisory body to the technical panels of the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) of the United Nations, I collaborate on research with industrial engineers and wood products scientists to improve efficacy and adoption of radio frequency (RF) technology as an alternative phytosanitary treatment to methyl bromide fumigation.  A cooperative research and development agreement with USDA APHIS and patents for innovations in RF technology are in process as we continue to work on refinements to the technology that reduce energy costs.
