UAV-based Delivery of Solid Insecticide
Invention Summary: Mosquito borne diseases constitute more than half a billion illnesses and over a million deaths yearly. Wide-scale mosquito pesticide and larvicide dispersion (e.g., aerial dispersion) is no longer a viable option due to 1) posing public health concerns, and 2) urban area expansion into mosquito habitats, making mosquito control...

New Non-Membrane Feeding Device And Diet Formulation For Mosquito Colony Production
Efficacy of artificial diets (BSA 10% and BSA 20%) for 10 generations of Aedes albopictus mosquito. These diets were prepared with distilled water and used in the new dietary system. For the blood feeding, the live guinea pig was used as a control. Mosquito feeding status on the new dietary system. (A) unfed, (B) half fed and (C) full fed. Arrow...

New RNAi-mediated method for resistance to soybean cyst nematode
Homozygous siRNA-transgenic soybean plants are 40-80% (approx.) more resistant to soybean cyst nematode as compared to the wild type plants (wt). The percentage of reduction in egg number is shown above the bar for each transgenic soybean line. Invention Summary: Rutgers scientists have developed a new method for inducing resistance to soybean cyst...

Autodissemination of an Insect-Growth Regulator for Mosquito Management
Invention Summary: Rutgers scientists have developed an insecticide (e.g, pyriproxyfen) autodissemination station that topically contaminates oviposition-seeking mosquitoes in such a manner that the mosquitoes then bring the active control agent back to their breeding locations for control of container-inhabiting mosquitoes in urban environments, particularly...
