Why study insects?

Three graduate students in Entomology share their reasons in this video for studying the diverse and exciting world of insects!

Hailey Shanovich investigates how natural insect enemies can protect orchard crops against invasive insect pests.

Correy Hildebrand's work expands our knowledge of how insects answer important forensic questions.

James Wolfin explores how pollinators benefit from adding a variety of plants to traditional lawns.
