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

"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

"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

"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
