overview

My research program focuses on the development of new pest management tools for Florida's livestock operators. Beef cattle, dairy cattle and horses are the predominant livestock in Florida and are the focus of this program. Insecticide resistance and control failures are commonplace for many of the fly pests; therefore, innovative systems are needed to assist in their management. However, to successfully manage these pests, studies investigating their biology and ecology are needed.



The role that biological control can play in assisting with pest control is another research avenue. Producer pesticide selection and the resultant impacts on non-target, beneficial arthropods in grazing systems are of particular interest.
