Choosing A Certified Inidividual

Choosing A Certified Inidividual

Many times the work that entomologists do goes unnoticed by the general public. Entomologists work with agricultural specialists to increase crop yields, they work with building inspectors to help them identify the different species of termites, each of which might have a different recommendation for treatment. Like any profession, though, when a person needs to talk to an expert, they want to be sure they have a reliable source. That is part of the reason for the certification program.

Why Choose a Board or Associate Certified Entomologist

Why Choose a Board or Associate Certified Entomologist

Insects outnumber humans more than 1.6 billion to one. They are one of the most plentiful and successful life forms on the planet and they are the cornerstone of our ability to survive on earth. Consider the number of crops that require insect interaction for pollination, the life forms that use them as a food source, the knowledge we have gained from studying their DNA, and so on.

Insects are the root of all life on earth.
