ESA Symposia

USDA, university and industry people interested stored-product entomology have met annually at the Entomological Society of America (ESA) meeting since 1975. Some early meetings were informal discussions, other meetings had a more specific title for the topic of discussion and more recently speakers were scheduled. The information presented by many speakers has or will be published, but some will not. Each year an organizer or organizers are identified for the next meeting. Below, the location of ESA meeting, title of the symposium and organizer(s) are given for each year. When more specific topics or speakers were scheduled, these are listed. The organizers, moderators and speakers are shown in bold.

Dunkel 1983 future trends

In 1982, a transcript of the discussion was distributed to participants. This meeting was well ahead of its time discussing the rise of private consultants and the establishment of economic thresholds for stored-product insects. Consultants can: 1) help managers select the best pest management method and optimize the timing of its implementation, 2) help managers cost-effectively integrate several pest management methods and 3) help managers utilize more complex methods. Consultants can make a larger number of pest management programs available to solve pest problems. The transcript indicates that scouting programs for farm-stored grain in Kentucky by Harley Raney, in Nebraska by Leroy Peters and in Minnesota by Scott Duffus were discussed. Many fewer samples are needed to determine whether insect populations have exceeded an economic threshold than to determine the actual density of insect pests, making insect monitoring more economical. However, few economic thresholds have been developed for stored-product insects.
