The Department of Entomology will be offering a graduate-level course in fall 2013 in Medical and Veterinary Entomology. Students in the course will discover the arthropod pests that affect human and animal health. Throughout the semester, we will explore the biology of the arthropod pests and the disease-causing pathogens they transmit to humans, pets, livestock and wildlife. Each week we will discuss an arthropod group of concern, along with diseases they transmit in both temperate and tropical areas.
The Louisiana Mosquito Control Association will be holding its annual meeting December 3-5.
More information will be posted as the dates approach.
