Welcome

The Applied Entomology Group in the Department of Plant and Environmental Protection Sciences (PEPS)  at the University of Hawaii Manoa investigates the behavior and ecology of pest organisms and beneficial insects.  Our mission is to understand biology and ecology of insect pests and weeds so that we can 
contribute to responsible management practices and healthy ecosystems.
