In this webinar, Elizabeth Long provides a brief overview of the factors that influence pesticide exposure risks for beneficial insects across the landscape. She summarizes current knowledge of the different routes of pesticide exposure for pollinators, discusses the research methods used to identify these risks, and highlights steps we can take to promote and protect pollinators in our home, urban, and agricultural landscapes.

Research underway in Cleveland by graduate student Denisha Parker, undergraduate Ryan Byler, and entomologist Mary Gardiner was featured in the city's ciCLEvia event July 16.
In its second year, ciCLEvia is an open streets movement that periodically closes down sections of the city to motorists and opens it to everything from yoga to cycling to giant Jenga games and hula hooping.
The Department of Entomology (http://entomology.osu.edu) in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (http://cfaes.osu.edu/) of The Ohio State University (OSU) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Medical and Veterinary Entomology (50% research; 30% teaching; 20% outreach) to study the biology, ecology, and management of arthropods that vector viruses and other pathogens that cause diseases of humans and/or animals. The position can be located at either the Columbus or Wooster campus, which each provide state-of-the-art facilities for conducting infectious disease research and excellent opportunities for collaboration with food, veterinary, medical, public health, and animal and plant scientists.
Diego Orellana Vintimilla, a M.S. student in the Department of Entomology, was recently named a fellow to the Future Leaders Forum – a competitive program managed by the Association for International Agriculture and Rural Development(AIARD) aimed at fostering student interest in international agriculture and rural development issues and their solutions.
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Honeybees don’t just buzz. They dance.
And thousands of students in Ohio and seven other states will learn why that’s a vital aspect of honeybee pollination as they participate in this year’s 4-H Ag Innovators Experience, the Honey Bee Challenge.
The challenge was developed by specialists with Ohio State University Extension.
It’s the third consecutive year that OSU Extension has developed the challenge used for the annual innovators experience, sponsored by the National 4-H Council and Monsanto Company.
“There’s a lot of interest and concern about honeybees,” said Beth Hecht, grant manager for the National 4-H Council. “This topic seemed like a natural for our annual challenge.”
