treatment for brush control.
Collection Organization: Texas A & M Department of Entomology.
Collection Methodology: The collected wing thermister and Vaisala relative
humidity sensor. Through Campbell Scientific data loggers.
Collection Frequency: Hourly for two years.
Update Characteristics: This project had a 2 year window. Therefore, it has
