Interests: My research addresses existing, emerging, and invasive pest management issues of turfgrass and ornamentals, along with the principles of applied insect ecology. Research projects aim to enhance our understanding of the biology of the pest and beneficial species to develop and refine monitoring and management strategies. The major thrust is developing management tactics that would reduce the impact on the environment and non-targets. My extension program promotes the adoption of integrated pest management principles driven by lab and field studies.

Special Issue Information
Invasive insects pose serious risks to the production and quality of food, fibers, and horticultural crops around the globe. Growers spend a considerable amount of money combating invasive insects. Researchers are engaged in studying various biological and ecological aspects of invasive insects, such as lifecycle, phenology, dispersal, behavior, and abiotic responses, to develop effective and sustainable management strategies. This Special Issue will report recent, innovative tools and reviews on specific subject areas related to improving management of invasive insects affecting agricultural and ornamental commodities.Dr. Shimat V.
