But last fall, Oregon launched the first attempt to stop the voracious invasive pest with the help of a longtime foe — a tiny wasp with a taste for its eggs. Scientists have studied the parasitoid wasp — Trissolcus japonicus — under strict quarantine for about 10 years to see if it could be safely deployed as a biological control on brown marmorated stink bug without risks to native stink bugs or other unintended consequences.
Signs were promising, but after T. And since BMSB is all over the Willamette Valley and beyond, we figure that the wasp is going to spread on its own without our help.

Relatively little is known about the processes shaping population structure in cooperatively breeding insect species, despite the long-hypothesized importance of population structure in shaping patterns of cooperative breeding. Polistes paper wasps are primitively eusocial insects, with a cooperative breeding system in which females often found nests in cooperative associations. Prior mark-recapture studies of Polistes have documented extreme female philopatry, although genetic studies frequently fail to detect the strong population structure expected for highly philopatric species.
Together these findings have led to lack of consensus on the degree of dispersal and population structure in these species. This study assessed population structure of female Polistes fuscatus wasps at three scales: within a single site, throughout Central New York, and across the Northeastern United States. Patterns of spatial genetic clustering and isolation by distance were observed in nuclear and mitochondrial genomes at the continental scale.

Goodwin Avenue, Urbana, IL ;. Author contributions: M. We asked whether barcoding and morphology discover the same provisional species and whether the biological entities revealed by our analysis are congruent with wasp host specificity. The most extreme case of overlooked diversity is the morphospecies Apanteles leucostigmus. This minute black wasp with a distinctive white wing stigma was thought to parasitize 32 species of ACG hesperiid caterpillars, but barcoding revealed 36 provisional species, each attacking one or a very few closely related species of caterpillars.
Our iterative process of combining morphological analysis, ecology, and DNA barcoding and reiteratively using specimens maintained in permanent collections has resulted in a much more fine-scaled understanding of parasitoid diversity and host specificity than any one of these elements could have produced on its own.
Since insect parasitoids kill their hosts, they have profound effects on the population dynamics of their hosts 2.

UK fans have quite the wait compared to their US counterparts. After the super-sized spectacle of Avengers: Infinity War, which left many of our heroes in the Marvel Universe in dire straits, Marvel Studios has shifted its focus back to its smallest hero franchise – Ant-Man. Paul Rudd’s hero will be joined by his leading lady from the first film, Evangeline Lilly’s Hope van Dyne, but now in full superheroine mode as the Wasp.
The film is already released in US cinemas, leading many to wonder just when exactly UK fans will be able to see the super duo in action. No fear, the Mirror Online has all you need to know and will avoid major spoilers for the film

Kate Spade the brand existed before Kate Spade the person. It was the brainchild of a former Mademoiselle accessories editor named Katie Brosnahan—and her partner in business and life, Andy Spade. Together Kate and Andy created more than just a line of now-iconic handbags, they created an aesthetic. Kate Spade achieved the near-impossible feat of blending it-girl New York cool and down-to-earth Midwestern fun.
Name another brand that has so successfully managed to be both cheerfully approachable and fashionably aspirational? Kate met Andy when they were students at Arizona State University. A native of Kansas City, Brosnahan was a journalism major who had worked in a motorcycle bar and a clothing store. It was there that she met her future husband. He was on the men’s side. And one day, his car broke down, and he asked me for a ride home.
She got a job at Conde Nast, in the fashion closet of Mademoiselle , and contemplated moving back to Arizona to be with Andy. I loved, you know, the fast pace of New York. And suddenly it just—I loved it. Andy eventually joined Kate in New York, where they lived in a tiny walk up apartment and Spade worked in advertising.

The European paper wasp looks similar to a yellow jacket, but has a narrower body and longer hind legs. The European paper wasp Polistes dominulus was first reported to be causing damage in the province in , but it became a serious problem in the Creston Valley three years ago, reports Duane Holder of FarmQuest Consulting, Ltd. The wasp is found in Washington State, but has not been reported as a pest of cherries, according to Dr. Peter Landolt, entomologist with the U.
Department of Agriculture in Yakima, Washington. However, the European paper wasp has damaged wine grapes, which mature much later in the year. Parts of some vineyards in the lower Yakima Valley and Walla Walla areas have had severe damage. The wasp, which has the coloring of a yellow jacket, but a thinner body and much longer hind legs, originated in the Mediterranean region, Holder said.
It was first reported in the eastern United States in and has since moved across North America. Orchards that adjoin natural vegetation and have buildings such as barns and sheds nearby seem more vulnerable than contiguous orchards. The wasps build nests in secluded places, such as under eaves and soffits and in bird houses. Unlike some other species of wasps, the paper wasp is not resident in orchards, Holder said. Overwintering queens move into orchards in early spring, at around the green tip stage, as they begin to establish nests and develop areas for the colony to expand.
It might be a month or so before worker wasps appear.
There are more updates in the Youtube drama between Carson and his girlfriend Katerino as the cheating rumours are finally confirmed! The popular American gaming YouTuber Carson King, known online as CallMeCarson, has had trouble in paradise after allegations his girlfriend Katerino, also known as Kate, had cheated on him.
It seems the drama is continuing as the two make statements on the issue and argue over who is actually to blame! Speculation began when Carson unfollowed Fitz on social media and then announced a break from YouTube. Carson then repeatedly responded to Reddit posts which speculated that Kate had cheated on Carson, practically saying that the rumours were true.

ISBN These three novels place women at the centre of their narratives, as narrators of their own stories. In this sense, Banks insists upon a position of gender equality, with women as aggressive, as clever and as resourceful as men. This is, of course, particularly the case with Frank in The Wasp Factory, where the insistence upon a violent and misogynistic code is finally turned on its head with the revelation that Frank is, in fact, Francis.
Gender is therefore constructed and not innate, as it is, too, for Kate and Isis, products of adoptive or extended families. However, just as Frank must accommodate a new version of self and gender at the end of The Wasp Factory, so do Kate and, to an extent, Isis look towards the possibility of other options at the end of the texts, options which include the specifically female roles of mother and wife.
Holding positions of control and authority seems to preclude the possibility of exploration of other areas of female experience in these texts, with the possibility of other roles only offered at the end of the novels.

Fig: a hollow, round structure that holds the flowers of a fig tree and which is later filled with the sweet and seedy fig fruit. Pollinate: moving pollen from the male to the female component of a flower as part of the fertilization process in plants. Birds and insects often move pollen from flower to flower when gathering nectar and they are therefore called pollinators
