Biology of Cat Flea (Ctenocephalides felis (Bouch))

  • Investigating biology and ecology of cat flea, an important urban pest insect, can improve studies of controlling cat flea. Our researches are including flea larval cannibalism, reproduction of fleas and Gregarines in cat flea.

Ecology and Control of Plant Pests

  • For plant protection, different kinds of traps are used to detect and monitor plant quarantine pests in Taiwan. Moreover, for preventing Solenopsis invicta causes more damage, we study on its biology and ecology, including natural enemies and venom alkaloids of fire ants.
