World-wide impact on entomological research

For more than 125 years, the faculty members, staff and students in the Department of Entomology have been working to advance the field of insect biology and apply that knowledge to solve real-world problems and improve lives. We are committed to training the next generation of entomologists and disseminating our work through extension and outreach, and we are consistently ranked among the top programs for insect science in the world.

Our cutting-edge research is leading to a better understanding of insect biology and diversity, to improve human and animal health and increase the sustainability of our food production and ecosystems.

In addition, we actively work to make our department and the discipline of entomology diverse, equitable and inclusive. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about the department.
