To better understand the adult horn fly, Haematobia irritans irritans, and the development of resistance in natural populations, an Illumina paired-end read HiSeq and GAII approach was used to determine the transcriptomes of untreated control adult females, untreated control adult males, permethrin-treated surviving adult males and permethrin + piperonyl butoxide-treated killed adult males from a Louisiana population of horn flies with a moderate level of pyrethroid resistance.
This study reports the assembly of 4149 transcripts (≥200 nt) from testes dissected from New World Screwworm Cochliomyia hominivorax males obtained from the J06 strain used in the screwworm production plant in Pacora, Panama.
Data from: Life history changes in Trogoderma variabile and T. inclusum due to mating delay with implications for mating disruption as a management tactic
Egg and progeny counts for Trogoderma variabile and Trogoderma inclusum adults with delays in mating. These data were generated to examine the effect of mating delay on life history and reproductive capacity as a cue to the use of mating disruption tactics such as pheromone lures. Survivorship was calculated as the last day egg counts were recorded for an individual. Blocks were adults that were all mated on the same day. Reps are an individual female. Control beetles are coded with either an "f" or an "m" for female and male and were never mated. Male control data was examined for similarity to female control data but was not used in further analysis and comparison. The experiment was all done at 30C, 65% relative humidity and a 16 light/8 dark photoperiod. Adults were transferred every 2 days to new vials and eggs were then counted and save for progeny counts. Trogoderma variabile populations were laboratory colonies for over 20 years. T. inclusum populations were collected in Kansas in August of 2012. We did not transform these data.
Data from: Variation in genome size and karyotype among closely-related aphid parasitoids (Hymenoptera: Aphelinidae)
This study measured genome sizes and determined the karyotypes of nine species of aphid parasitoids in the genus Aphelinus.
