Entomological Society of America names winners of Monsanto student travel and research awards
Date:9/11/2013

degree in entomology at Auburn University, working with Dr. Art Appel. His research focused on the physiology of urban pests, such as silverfish, firebrats, and bed bugs. His work has led to some interesting discoveries about the metabolism of these species as well as numerous collaborations with other departments and universities. Zach completed his master's degree in entomology in 2013 and is now continuing his studies as a doctoral student, working with Dr. Coby Schal of North Carolina State University. During his PhD, Zach intends to continue his research on the physiology of urban pests.

DIANE SILCOX, as the daughter of an entomologist, grew up with a love for insects. During a summer research program at Miami University, she discovered how interesting insects were and that there is much to learn about them. She found her love of turfgrass while spending time with her father, taking cup-cutter cores to sample for annual bluegrass weevil larvae. She found this work fascinating and decided to explore entomology departments that had faculty who specialized in turfgrass entomology. In May of 2008, she moved to Raleigh, North Carolina to begin her master's with Dr. Rick Brandenburg. She spent two years in North Carolina researching the response of the tawny mole cricket to synthetic insecticides. She found some interesting avoidance behaviors by mole crickets to toxic synthetic insecticides, but apparently little avoidance to non-toxic insecticides. In January of 2011, she successfully defended her master's thesis and decided to stay at NC State for her PhD. Her research focuses on the ecology and behavior of the hunting billbug in warm-season turfgrass. She is primarily investigating the feeding behavior and environmental factors that affect their development. Understanding this pest's biology will allow us to develop a cost-effective and environmentally-sound management plan. Upon graduation she will be seeking employment near College Station, TX
