Insects are the largest and most diverse group of organisms on earth. Almost a million species have been described by scientists with more to come.
The Entomology Department addresses questions and concerns involving insects and related arthropods, ranging from management of pest species to assessment of insect roles in natural ecosystems. Our Research and Extension functions are supported by the LSU AgCenter. Classroom instruction is supported by the College of Agriculture and the Graduate School.
