DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO IDENTIFY INSECT PESTS WITH CONFIDENCE?

Visit the world’s #1 Urban Entomology Lab right here at the University of Florida (UF) and step up your game!

Join us as we tour the world’s foremost urban entomology facility and gain first-hand training on identifying Florida’s most prevalent pests.  Professors and students will be on hand to answer questions and provide insight into the latest pest management techniques; what’s working and what’s not. Take-away specimens for future reference!
