The entomology laboratory at the Southwest Florida Research and Education Center
(SWFREC) is part of the University of Florida’s/IFAS research and education centers.
There are 19 research centers throughout Florida. The SWFREC is located in Immokalee,
FL, and responds to the agricultural needs of the region.
Our objective is to collaborate with plant and animal producers of the region to
attend their concerns with respect to insect pest and their management, natural
enemies’ conservation, insecticide use, and best management practices. Our resources
are focused towards classical and participative research, extension, and personal
attention to producers.
