However, their cognitive abilities are almost universally ignored, and offer novel angles of attack. Applying behavioural economic and psychological concepts, I will open the new field of Cognitive Control of invasive animals. In Work Package 1 I will use microeconomic tools to gain unprecedented insights into insect preference structu...
