Wanted! – Chinch Bugs

Wanted! – Chinch BugsGot chinch bugs??? Dr. Buss needs lots and lots of chinch bugs this year for some lab and greenhouse tests. She is trying to determine some nitty-gritty information on how chinch bugs develop resistance, and ultimately how to manage insecticide resistant populations.

If you see some beefy populations (call before they get treated, please). Dr. Eileen Buss’ office number is 352-273-3976, and email is eabuss@ufl.edu. No chinch bug will be turned away (unless it’s already dead).

She would love to get a couple populations from Georgia, Alabama, and Texas, if possible, too. Have truck, will travel (or pay for FedEx)… 🙂
