Date:6/9/2013

Nearly 300 entomologists will meet June 16-19, 2013 at the Best Western Ramkota Rapid City Hotel & Conference Center in Rapid City, South Dakota as the Entomological Society of America's North Central Branch holds its 68th Annual Meeting.

Topics of discusssion will include:

  • Agricultural insect pests such as the western corn rootworm, the soybean aphid, and the twospotted spider mites

  • Urban insect pests, such as bed bugs and termites

  • Insect pollinators, such as honey bees

  • Biological control (using insects to manage other insects) with lady beetles, parasitic wasps, and other insects

  • Genetically-modified, insect-resistant crops such as corn and soybeans

  • Medically important insects such as ticks and mosquitoes

  • Integrated Pest Management

  • Insect Behavior

In addition, the meeting will feature the Linnaean Games, where university student teams compete against each other in a test of insect knowledge, plus an Insect Photo Salon, a Career Center, an Awards Ceremony, student competitions, and social events.
