Automatic Monitoring of Insect Populations

  1. 1. Automatic Monitoring of Insect Populations Johnny Park , Purdue University & Spensa Technologies Larry Hull , Penn State University Vince Jones , Washington State University August 18, 2011
  2. 2. Team Members
  3. 3. <ul><li>Over $4.5B are spent annually on insecticide applications in the U.S. </li></ul><ul><li>Insect populations in the field drive when, where, and how much insecticide is applied </li></ul><ul><li>However, the current practice of monitoring insect populations is labor intensive! </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Currently plastic sex pheromone traps are used to monitor insect populations </li></ul><ul><li>1 trap per 2.5 - 5 acres is recommended for apple orchards </li></ul><ul><li>At least 1-2 times a week, the number of insects in each trap must be counted manually </li></ul>
