The Pesticide Alternatives Lab currently employs several undergraduate students who help with both lab and field work. Lab work varies from project to project, but mainly consists of plum curculio (PC) colony maintenance, using an ELISA instrument for protein tagging and analysis, and aiding graduate students with experiments.
Field work consists of constructing, placing, and monitoring insect traps throughout Southwest and Northwest Michigan. Several students help with writing of reports, grants, writing and compiling the Resistance Pest Management Newsletter, and maintaining the Arthropod Pesticide Resistance Database.
