The insects are just as anxious as we are for winter to be over.

As an entomologist, I start longing for warm sunny days filled with insect collecting, especially when all I see while I look out my office window is snow still on the ground as we come into the second week of March. 

I know I am not the only one ready for this weather to take a turn for springtime.  I am sure each and every one of you are already feeling like you are behind on field work, as most of the fields are still hidden beneath some white stuff. 

During these winter month, we at Agrimanagement take the time to attend industry meetings for the many crops grown in our region.  Some of these meetings take us as far away as Savannah, Georgia, where David and Ethan attended this year’s National Association of Independent Crop Consultants (NAICC).  This month I will be attending a couple of insect related meetings; later this week I will be in Portland for the Biocontrols Conference USA West, then at the end of the month it will be the Entomological Society of America (ESA) Pacific Branch meeting in San Diego, California.   These meetings help keep us informed and up to date on many of the new exciting things happening within the world of agriculture.  More about these two meetings will be shared at a later date. 

I am looking forward to serving your pest management needs in this new growing season here with Agrimanagement, assuming the snow melts eventually.
