Urban Entomology Endowed Research Fund
Since 1995, annual distribution from the Urban Entomology Endowed Research Fund provides support from undergraduate and graduate students, research, extension, and outreach activities. The Endowed Research Fund is an important source of funds that will support new entomologists for generations to come.
The Urban Entomology Program at UCR has led the way in developing environmentally low-impact pest management strategies for controlling pests in and around homes. Studies have been conducted on important pests of California such as ants, cockroaches, fleas, termites, spiders and yellowjackets. Students and faculty have provided training and educational programs for the industry and public.
