  • Extension services, including insect identification, campus tours, Pest Control Operators of California presentations, distributor's seminars and professional meetings.
  • Entomology newsletters, Pest Notes, technical information and other         publications.
  • Student training in urban pest management, both for graduates and  undergraduates.
