Urban Entomology Workshop
This 1/2 day online event (started in fall 2020) aims to provide information on some critical areas of urban entomology (e.g., new research findings, insect ID course, other entomological knowledge) for pest management professionals and other parties who serve on various aspects of urban pest management. It is typically organized in fall (November).
The event provides continuing education credits from the California Structural Pest Control Board and the California Department of Pesticide Regulation.
