Biological Integrated Pest Control & Insect Identification

Written by: Dr. E. Fred Legner (University of California)

Over 40 years of research by the University of California and Dr. E. Fred Legner have gone into this website and comprehensive database. This site was created through an international effort coordinated by researchers at the University of California. From the site, “Its mission is to facilitate the dissemination, application and generation of scientific knowledge in support of sustainable solutions to problems in agriculture, forestry, human health and the management of natural resources, and with particular attention to the needs of developing countries.”

Saying this pest control and insect identification resource is huge is a bit of an understatement. I do with it was a bit easier to navigate as there are a number of lists of links that are menus or indexes but the vast amount of information makes the search worth it. I’ve shared here the one that seems the most logical and ordered.
