Data from: Experiments on Jackson trap efficiency capturing Bactrocera dorsalis and Zeugodacus cucurbitae

    We tested the effects of three important components of Jackson traps on efficiency of capture of two important fruit fly species, using the “standard” (i.e., as they are used in the state-wide surveillance program in California) and alternatives: Insecticide (Naled, DDVP or None), type of adhesive on the sticky panel (Seabright Laboratories Stickem Special Regular or Stickem Special HiTack), and use of a single or combination male lure (Methyl eugenol and/or cuelure). Experiments were conducted in large outdoor carousel olfactometers with known numbers of Bactrocera dorsalis and Zeugodacus cucurbitae and by trapping wild populations of the same two species. Lures were aged out to eight weeks to develop a comprehensive dataset on trap efficiency of the various combinations.

    SGA (farm)

      Stored Grain Advisor (SGA) is a decision support system for managing insect pests of farm-stored wheat. The program predicts the likelihood of insect infestation, and recommends appropriate preventative actions . It also provides advice on how to sample and identify insect pests of stored wheat. SGA Pro was designed for use in commercial elevators as part of the Areawide IPM Project for stored grain. Grain samples are taken with a vacuum probe and processed over an inclined sieve. SGA Pro analyzes the insect data, grain temperatures and moistures, and determines which bins need to be fumigated.

      Data from: Pasture dragging fails to reliably suppress the emergence of horn flies (Haematobia irritans) and face flies (Musca autumnalis) from dung pats in a Mid-Atlantic North American climate

        In order to determine if pasture dragging suppresses the emergence of horn flies (Haematobia irritans) and face flies (Musca autumnalis) from dung pats in a Mid-Atlantic North American climate, bovine dung pats were spread with pasture drag or plaster knife and covered with emergence traps, and emerging flies quantified.

        Manual annotations of Rhyzopertha dominica genome assembly RdoDt3_Drdd8_decomES

          This dataset contains manual annotations from Rhyzopertha dominica community curators, based on genome assembly RdoDt3_Drdd8_decomES.fasta.gz. These annotations are direct exports from Apollo 2.6 (https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.5015109), hosted by the i5k Workspace@NAL (https://i5k.nal.usda.gov/). Manual annotations are temporary and will be reviewed by the i5k Workspace@NAL and submitted to NCBI's GenBank database after review.

          Data from: Mobility of phosphine-susceptible and -resistant Rhyzopertha dominica (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae) and Tribolium castaneum (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) after exposure to controlled release materials with existing and novel active ingredients

            Data collected from early Sep 2020 - Jun 2021 for two experiments: (1) mobility of Tribolium castaneum and Rhyzopertha dominica after exposure to differently formulated controlled release materials for 0-60 min, and (2) median lethal time after exposure to cheesecloth treated with permethrin, deltamethrin, indoxacarb, and dinotefuran between 0-168 h. Tested strains include phosphine-resistant and phosphine-susceptible populations.

            Data from: Quantifying Insect Dispersal Distances from Trapping Detections Data to Predict Delimiting Survey Radii, Raw Florida fruit fly Distances

              Trapping survey detections data for Medfly and OFF with latitudes and longitudes and other spatial identifications removed, to protect private properties from being identified. Data are from Florida, 1956-2018, and were used to quantify the dispersal kernel, or total distance travelled, up to 30 days. "Collected Florida fruit fly distances raw data v1.csv" is the data with brief information for all records, including those that could not be clustered and analyzed. The data can be used to verify the dataset reporting in the linked citation.

Data are from Florida, 1956-2018, and were used to quantify the dispersal kernel, or total distance travelled, up to 30 days. "Collected Florida fruit fly distances data v1.csv" is the data with clustering for proximity in time and space. This data includes distance metrics calculated for each record, from the cluster centroid.
