Entomology Stridulations: Autumn 2022

The summer and autumn are often referred to as a “growing season” and our department certainly took advantage of this time.  We grew our faculty and staff, expanded laboratory and research capacity, and transitioned our collaboration with the Plant and Pest Diagnostic Clinic to Wooster. Construction begins soon to welcome our departmental USDA-ARS colleagues to the Wooster Science Building.
