- ... The polyphagous navel orangeworm, Amyelois transitella Walker (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae), is a major insect pest of almonds and pistachios in California (USA). Amyelois transitella moths have proven difficult to monitor and control for over 5 decades; however, recent reports indicate progress towards attractants using pheromone or semiochemical blends.

- ... Predation is a key force constraining the time and space in which prey can forage. Theoretical models propose that warning coloration (aposematism) may help unprofitable prey to extend their foraging niche without suffering the costs of predation. In this study, we show that aposematism can alter the development of those behaviors that are associated with detection by predators. The aposematic rov ...
