Entomologists to discuss threat and management of wide range of insect pests
Date:8/29/2012

RIVERSIDE, Calif. How are chemical pesticides impacting honey bees? How can the spread of the deadly Asian citrus psyllid be controlled by a wasp, its natural enemy? Could the olive fruit fly be similarly controlled? How could oils control snails and bugs? And what exactly is the Bagrada bug?

Entomologists from the University of California, Riverside will address these and many other bug-related questions at a conference on Sept. 19 at the South Coast Winery Resort and Spa, 34843 Rancho California Road, Temecula, Calif.

Sponsored by the UC Riverside Department of Entomology, the University of California Cooperative Extension and the California Association of Pest Control Advisers, the daylong conference will begin with registration at 7:30 a.m., followed by a series of short talks on a variety of topics related to insect pests and their management. The conference will end at 5 p.m. following an all-speaker panel discussion at 4:30 p.m.

Registration before Sept. 14 costs $130 per person. At-door registration costs $145. The fee includes a buffet lunch.

"This conference is an excellent occasion for the public to learn about a portion of the diverse work UCR entomologists are doing and the impact that this research has on the citizens of California," said Rick Redak, the chair of the Department of Entomology, who will discuss in the afternoon the glassy-winged sharpshooter and its management. "The topics covered will demonstrate the results of our research as well as the many benefits this work is providing."
