entomology students

Aphid campground

After transplanting week-old soybean plants, seniors Jake Smith (biology) and Megan Krumbholz (math) cover each with an insect tent in a field plot north of the Insectary. Their efforts are part of summer aphid research led by associate professor of entomology Matt Oneal, whose work focuses on developing ecologically and economically sustainable insect management programs for the soybean plant.
