Communicating research to the broader community
Our extension program applies the results of research to alleviate insect problems in New York state, across the U.S. and around the world. This effort reflects the ever-changing needs of the state’s agriculture industry, recreational resources and urban dwellers. A primary reason for a department devoted to the multifaceted study of insects and related arthropods is to bring our collective expertise to bear on important insect-related issues of society.
