We invite you to explore this website to gain a better understanding of who we are and what we do. Our program is diverse and focuses on many different insect species and their interactions with agriculture, and communicating this information to growers, scientists, the general public and regulators. We work in basic and applied aspects of entomology, but always with the vision of improving food security and the environmental footprint of agriculture.
