Defined as the study of insects, Entomology is a fairly wide field that incorporates a wide range of studies. From parasitisism to mutualistic relationships, entomology doesn't just involve insects. Of course it focuses on the individual species, but it also focuses on the relationships and how the insects interact with their environment, including the surrounding flora and other insects. Since entomology is such a wide field, the studies conducted can be applied to many modern facilities, including (but not limited to) agriculture, medicine, production of clothing, and even forensics.
Entomology can lead to an exciting career as an entomologist. A pest control operator can become an Associate Certified Entomologist (ACE) after accumulating a minimum of 7 years of verifiable pest management experience, a current pesticide applicator's license issued in the U.S. and the ability to pass a rigorous test on structural pest control knowledge. Take a look at this interactive insect map, which shows the different kinds of insects known to inhabit different states throughout the U.S. at different times of the year- brought to you by the entomologists at Rove Pest Control.
