    Liu Y, Haynes K. Effects of Ultralow Oxygen and Vacuum Treatments on Bed Bug (Heteroptera: Cimicidae) Survival. J Econ Entomol. 2016;: pubmed
    ..This study demonstrated that bed bugs were very susceptible to low oxygen stresses and ULO and vacuum treatments have potential to be used as effective and safe treatments to decontaminate bed bug-infested removable objects. ..
  3. Liu Y, Yang X, Simmons G. Efficacy of Nitric Oxide Fumigation for Controlling Codling Moth in Apples. Insects. 2016;7: pubmed
    ..This study demonstrated that NO fumigation was effective against codling moth and safe to apple quality, and therefore has potential to become a practical alternative to methyl bromide fumigation for control of codling moth in apples. ..
  4. Liu Y, Yang X, Masuda T. Procedures of Laboratory Fumigation for Pest Control with Nitric Oxide Gas. J Vis Exp. 2017;: pubmed publisher
    ..This publication is intended to assist other researchers in conducting NO fumigation research for postharvest pest control and accelerating the development of NO fumigation for practical applications. ..
