This datatable is part of the Ant populations and Pest suppression dataset. Data supporting the paper Helms IV, J. A., S. E. Ijelu, B. D. Wills, D. A. Landis, and N. M. Haddad. 2020. Ant biodiversity and ecosystem services in bioenergy landscapes. Agriculture, Ecosystems and Environment 290:106780

The data tables document mortality of pest insect eggs in vertebrate exclosures, as well as ant species and the number of ant workers captured in pitfall traps, during the 2018 growing season in LTER forest plots, the Biofuel Cropping System Experiment (BCSE) plots, and the GLBRC Scale-up Experiment.
