Government shutdown is bugging entomologists
"The shutdown of government means a shutdown of research, and those effects will last for years," said ESA President Rob Wiedenmann. "The shutdown may also affect regulations for approving new crop pesticides at the time when growers are ordering next year's seeds. The effects of those delays or lack of approvals will not be seen until next year's crop is harvested."
The Entomological Society of America is the largest organization in the world serving the professional and scientific needs of entomologists and people in related disciplines. Founded in 1889, ESA today has more than 6,500 members affiliated with educational institutions, health agencies, private industry, and government. Members are researchers, teachers, extension service personnel, administrators, marketing representatives, research technicians, consultants, students, and hobbyists.
