Entomology team

The Entomology Facility team is managed by Dr Ian Bedford with technical support from the two full time Research Entomologists.

We are happy to answer any invertebrate related questions and are always looking for ways we can collaborate with scientists to further their studies.

We can offer advice on many different aspects of plant pest management and often receive specimens for identification, or discuss garden problems over the phone.
