    Dr. Alejandro Del Pozo - Assistant Professor of Entomology-Applied Insect Ecology, Turfgrass and Ornamentals, Virginia Tech, Virginia Agricultural Research and Extension Centers, Virginia Beach, VA.

    Pest management poses different challenges for its implementation at the farm level. Growers ended relying heavily on chemical control tactics when battling both emerging or invasive pests in their fields. This presentation showcases how understanding the biology, phenology and ecology of targeted pests could inform the implementation of several tactics as part of an IPM program. Information on the use of remote monitoring traps, drones for releasing beneficials, insectary plants, and alternatives to pyrethroids and neonicotinoids will be discussed during this presentation.

    After winning the Entomology Games Branch championship this Spring at the North Central Branch meeting of the Entomological Society of America in Minneapolis MN, ISU's very own student team is preparing to compete internationally at the 2022 Joint Annual Meeting of the Entomological Society of America in several short weeks in Vancouver, BC!

    Traditionally, the department has held a practice game between the student team and the faculty in the place of a seminar in preparation for competition at the meeting. This year is no different! In a few short hours, the students will face off against the faculty in an intense battle of entomology knowledge, history, and culture. Please join us to enjoy the show!

    Student team: Andres Vargas, Kyndra Chastain, Matthew Pfab, John McCulloch; Alternate: Eliott Smith.
