We will focus our efforts on objective 4, establishing mobility of BMSB life stages. We will use flight mills interfaced with appropriate computer software to measure flight capacity of adults. We will use mark-release-recapture techniques to evaluate nymphal dispersal capabilities. In addition, we will establish the cues used by adults to select human-made overwintering sites.
