Objectifs
To determine the bionomics of and develop management methods for native and exotic invasive scale insect pests in Florida, and to learn details of the biology of scale insects that can be applied towards improving integrated management of scale insect pests and which will advance our understanding of scale insects in general.

Descriptif
Research will be focused primarily on exotic invasive scale insect species, since information that can be applied towards managing them and curtailing their spread is of urgent importance. Studies will also be conducted on certain native scale insects that are important pests or that offer opportunities to advance our general knowledge of scale insects. Field observations will be conducted to determine aspects of the bionomics of scale insects, including host plant ranges, within-plant distribution and selection of feeding sites by scale insect crawlers, and polymorphism within scale insect species. Laboratory observations will be conducted to determine details of the biology of scale insects such as the behavior of crawlers, temperature relationships, and morphology of the scale cover. Rearing techniques will be developed for scale insect species that are targets of biological control programs. Insecticides will be tested for control of selected scale insect pest species in field trials with infested plants.
