The 2013 Annual Meeting of the Entomological Society of America (ESA) in Austin, TX, November 10-13, 2013, will include symposia on urban and structural insect pests such as bed bugs, cockroaches, termites, ants, flies, mosquitoes, and others.

Thousands of entomologists and professionals from related disciplines will gather to exchange scientific information, enhance their professional knowledge and skills, and network with colleagues.

This year's meeting will feature the following symposia of interest to pest control professionals:

"Connecting the Community with Entomology and Integrated Pest Management" (Wednesday, November 13, 8:00 AM-5:00 PM) will feature presentations on bed bugs, fire ants, rodents, mosquitoes, and other pests. For more information, see http://esa.confex.com/esa/2013/webprogram/Session20513.html.

"Applied Research on Bed Bug Management" (Wednesday, November 13, 8:00 AM-12:00 PM) will feature presentations by bed bug experts on new research on bed bug insecticides, the importance of bed bug detection devices, designing model bed bug management programs, practical methods of controlling bed bugs, cost-effective and money-wasting do-it-yourself bed bug control strategies, updates on tropical bed bug research. For more information, see http://esa.confex.com/esa/2013/webprogram/Session19897.html.

"Red Imported Fire Ants: Global Approaches to a Global Invasive Species" (Sunday, November 10, 1:00 PM-6:00 PM) will feature presentations on the history and impact of the red imported fire ant, plus presentations on fire ant biology and control methods. For more info, see http://esa.confex.com/esa/2013/webprogram/Session19590.html.

"Structural Pests Symposium" (Wednesday, November 13, 2013: 8:00 AM-12:00 PM) will feature presentations on the biology of termites and products and methods for controlling them. For more information, see http://esa.confex.com/esa/2013/webprogram/Session20762.html.

"Urban Entomology Ten-Minute Papers" (Wednesday, November 13, 1:30 PM-5:30 PM) will feature short presentations on bed bugs, ants, cockroaches, ticks, flies and other insect pests. For more information, see http://esa.confex.com/esa/2013/webprogram/Session20754.html

"Highlights of Urban Entomology" (Monday, November 11, 3:30-4:30 PM) by Dong-Hwan Choe, University of California. For more information, see http://esa.confex.com/esa/2013/webprogram/Paper74712.html.

In addition, on Sunday, November 10, meeting attendees are invited to a "Lunch and Learn" session called "Is Certification Right for Me (and my team)?" with Mustapha Debboun, ESA's Certification Program Director, who will talk about the Associate Certified Entomologist (ACE) program, and how ACE certification can help pest control professionals.

Overall, the meeting will include 28 oral and poster presentations on bed bugs, 57 on termites, 18 on cockroaches, and many more on other insect pests.

Nearly 3,000 people are expected to attend Entomology 2013, which will also include tours, social gatherings, awards ceremonies, a career center, an exhibit hall, and networking opportunities.
