Department of Entomology

Department of Entomology

Insects are by far the most diverse group of organisms on Earth. The Department of Entomology works to protect our food supply, health, homes, yards, and gardens through the study of insects and insect relatives. Our teaching, research, and extension programs focus on critical issues such as pest management, honey bee health, invasive species, vectors of disease, and local food systems. We also use insects as model systems to further understanding of molecular biology, physiology, genetics, ecology, and evolution.

The Department of Entomology Development Fund supports research, teaching, outreach, and learning activities in these and other areas for our faculty, staff, and students. Thank you for supporting our efforts as we partner with our stakeholders to address critical local and global needs and issues.
