Caption: Colorado potato beetle research. Entomologist examining the results of DNA analysis of remains of the Colorado potato beetle (Leptinotarsa decemlineata) removed from the gut of an insect predator collected during fieldwork. The researcher is looking for evidence that the predator mainly consumes the Colorado potato beetle, an economically important pest that affects potato crops. Such natural predators can be used as part of biological control methods.
