College of Agriculture

Department of Entomology
Faculty of the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station

Work in our department addresses the great diversity of insects and other arthropods, including spiders, ticks, and mites, and how the myriad life histories have evolved in ecological and historical contexts, helping us know how to protect and conserve our world for generations to come.
