My research interest is focus on monitoring and biological control of fall armyworm in eastern DR Congo; I'm doing my thesis in developing a monitoring system to study fall armyworm's predators and parasitoids. In addition, I'm studying entomopathogens for more effective biological control against the fall armyworm.

Thank you for your comment Aislinn and sorry for this late reply. Not all regions of the DR Congo are made up of rainforest climate, the case of the Ruzizi plain and many other corners of the country. In fact, the Ruzizi plain has a rather special climate compared to Kabare which is located next to the Kahuzi Biega National Park. You have just underlined a very important aspect of the research that I had not considered, the action of the wind in the migration of fall armyworm. This would be very important to study.

Thank you for sharing the results of this research. This study confirms the active participation and implication of women in the management of fall armyworm on the African continent. A similar study (not yet published) on farmers perception and indigenous methods of fall armyworm management in eastern DR Congo confirms these results. Congratulations to the whole team for this interesting publication!

Hi Roger. The topic I shared is a short communication which is under review in African entomology. The results obtained show a low population in onion cultivation in the natural environment. However, I have not yet carried out studies on fecondity, but I have still preserved the specimens found. I only took the incidence aspect as it is the first time that FAW has been detected in onion crops.
