Master Volunteer Entomology Specialist Training will include experts speaking on insect identification, insect collecting and curation, integrated pest management, pesticide safety, insects in the garden and landscape, solitary bees/ pollinators, creating a bug-friendly garden, urban and structural pests, and insect disease transmission. Participants will collect and curate insects for a collection during the course. Master Volunteer Entomology Specialists are expected to carry out entomology projects within their respective counties to gain the required certification hours (20 hours).
Most of the course will be conducted at the Williamsom County Extension Office. There will be some local travel to sites for field trips and we are relying on participants to provide transportation for these trips. Please remember to dress accordingly for days we are taking field trips. Wear long pants and shoes with socks and bring a long sleeved shirt, sunscreen, insect repellent, flashlights and any other personal items you require.
