To all my Entomology Student friends,

     This is the portal where we could discuss "How to ace qualifying exams" to "I need a roommate for the SEB meeting at wherever" to "Help with teaching materials and methods" and just about anything.

      Once you are a member in this network, it would be a good idea to include 2-3  lines introducing yourself to the group as a reply to this message. Apart from these discussions, we would like to use this as a portal for communication to and from the ESA National and Branch Student Affairs Committees (SAC). Let us know how we can better serve your interests as students in entomology.


Be a member and invite your entomology friends (regardless of whether they are members of ESA) to be a part of this.


Looking forward to great interactions.


Cheri Abraham

Chair, ESA SAC 2011

  • Hello friends! I am Carey Minteer, a PhD student working on the biological control of weeds at the University of Arkansas. I am also the chair of the SEB student affairs committee. I, along with Cheri Abraham, encourage you to use this group as a way of communicating with fellow students about issues that we all face in our pursuits of a degree in entomology, as well as communicating with your student affairs committees at either the branch or national level. These committees were formed to ensure that students needs were being expressed and met by ESA. Use this to your advantage!
    • Why hello there, I’m Martin MacKenzie a MS Ent grad student in the Internet Division of the U of FL.

      Although I’m currently working on the life cycle of the twig beetle Pityophthorus boycei, my hobby is in designing insect traps (that do not work). One day I’ll get one to work as well as a Lindgren. Each year I build and trial one or 2 trap designs. This year I’m messing with a “air maze’ design (Fulton &Chamberlin (1930, J Econ Ent). So my 2 questions are (!) are there any more distance learning students out there ? And (!!) is anyone else messing with trap design?
