Entomological society honors UC IPM advisor
UC IPM Advisor Walt Bentley received an award from Entomological Society of America (ESA) President Marlin Rice for serving as president of the Pacific branch of the national society from 2008 to 2009.
While president, Bentley coordinated the Ninety-third Annual Meeting of the Pacific Branch of the ESA, held in April in San Diego. The theme of the meeting, which more than 200 members attended, was “50 years of the integrated control concept,” marking the 50th anniversary of the October 1959 Hilgardia paper by Vernon M. Stern, Ray F. Smith, Robert van den Bosch, and Kenneth S. Hagen that introduced the integrated control concept and formed the basis of what we, today, call IPM.
Walt Bentley, (559) 646-6527
