Choe, D.-H., J.-W. Tay, K. Campbell, H. Park, L. Greenberg, and M. K. Rust. 2021. Development and demonstration of low-impact IPM strategy to control Argentine ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in urban residential settings. J. Econ. Entomol. 114: 1752–1757.
In addition, the photo showing a pair of Argentine ant workers feeding on a biodegradable hydrogel bait (made form alginate compound) was selected as the cover page for August 2021 issue of JEE. The biodegradable hydrogel bait with boric acid as the active ingredient was incorporated as the maintenance treatment option for the study.
