Native bacteria block Wolbachia from being passed to mosquito progeny
Native bacteria living inside mosquitoes prevent the insects from passing Wolbachia bacteria -- which can make the mosquitoes resistant to the malaria parasite -- to their offspring, according to a team of researchers.  View News Article (2014-08-12)

Microbes help beetles defeat plant defenses
Some symbiotic bacteria living inside Colorado potato beetles can trick plants into reacting to a microbial attack rather than that of a chewing herbivore, according to a team of Penn State researchers who found that the beetles with bacteria were healthier and grew better. View News Article (2013-09-10)

Wheat resistance genes failing, new approach needed to stop flies

Entomologists offer new hope for controlling malaria
Entomologists are bringing new hope of preventing malaria in tropical villages. Research published in the new issue of the Royal Entomological Society journal Medical & Veterinary Entomology could significantly improve the effectiveness of insecticide-treated mosquito nets. One paper (Guillet et al, Medical & Veterinary Entomology, 15(1), pp. 105-112), describes the development of... View News Article (2001-03-07)

Beneficial insects, nematodes not harmed by genetically modified, insect-resistant crops
A large body of literature has shown that genetically-modified plants that produce proteins from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) to protect themselves from insect pests have little to no effect on a wide range of nontarget insects.  View News Article (2014-02-03)
