Abstract

Dr. Mary Gardiner, assistant professor at the Ohio State University, visited ISU and gave a seminar about her research on the ladybeetles. Ladybeetles can play a positive role by feeding on pest like the soybean aphid. Mary's research is focused on the exotic multi-colored asian ladybeetle. This species is a voracious predator of soybean aphids, but is also a pest in our homes and to grape growers. Mary is documenting the role landscape plays in the establishment of this species as part of her Buckeye Lady Beetle Blitz.
