Bacheler and Frank win 'Friends of IPM' Awards

Recognition for contributions to IPM

Jack Bacheler, along with his team of southeastern entomologists, will receive the Bright Idea award at the Southeastern Branch of the Entomological Society meeting in March. Bacheler and his colleagues created a decision aid card for cotton growers to measure boll size to test for susceptibility to stink bugs.

Steve Frank will receive the Future Leader award for his work on Banker Plant systems and research on the mechanisms behind pest outbreaks resulting from global warming.
