David Kattes

David Kattes is a Professor in WSES at Tarleton. He also serves as a Research Entomologist for Texas A&M AgriLife Research. Dr. Kattes is engaged in both agronomy and entomology.  His recent accomplishments include the publication of Insects of Texas: A Practical Guide. His work is supported by USDA-APHIS contracts and he mentors both undergraduate and graduate students. He has developed unique collection and trapping methods for novel insects and he collaborates with Fossil Rim Wildlife Center on projects involving pest of diverse ungulate populations. Research interests include the biology, ecology, and management of arthropods of veterinary and wildlife importance.  His group is currently studying various secondary plant compounds for potential low-impact management of filth flies. Dr. Kattes also has interests in the utilization of various legume, forb, and grass mixtures as livestock and wildlife forage.
