The optimal application density for MAT has not been investigated for this economically important pest species. We tested the effect of two levels of MAT application density compared to a no-MAT control on the daily survivorship of male and female B. dorsalis estimated by markrelease-reca…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
