Who We Are

The Next Generation of Pest Management Professionals

Since 1993, the Urban Entomological Society (UES) at the University of Florida has united graduate and undergraduate students interested in furthering urban entomology. Most of our members conduct research that advances a scientific understanding of urban entomology issues that concern the pest management industry, government agencies, and public health. UES has served the pest management industry at local, state, and national events as a source of publications, insect teaching collections, and buggy apparel. All proceeds from our sales support the efforts of urban entomology students at the University of Florida. See the events section below to catch us on the road (or at home)!
