The Entomological Society of America (ESA) was founded in 1889 and today has more than 6,000 members, including educators, extension personnel, consultants, students, researchers, and scientists from agricultural departments, health agencies, private industries, colleges and universities, and state and federal governments. It serves the professional and scientific needs of entomologists and people in related disciplines. To facilitate communication among members, the ESA is divided into four sections based on "entomological interests, and six branches, based on geographic proximity. The national office is located in "Annapolis, "Maryland.



In 1889, the American Association of Economic Entomologists was founded by Charles V. Riley, primarily focusing on economic entomology. In 1906, the Entomogical Society of America was organized meet the needs of the broader dimensions of biology, taxonomy, morphology, and faunistic studies of insects.


Annual meetings[edit]

The Annual Meeting of the Entomological Society of America is its premier event each year. For a four-day period, thousands of entomologists and professionals from related disciplines gather from around the world to exchange scientific information and ideas, enhance professional knowledge and skills, network with colleagues and re-acquaint with old friends, and conduct the business of the Society.

Certification programs[edit]

ESA offers two certification programs, the Associate Certified Entomologist (ACE) and the Board Certified Entomologist (BCE). BCE is geared toward those who are formally educated in entomology and ACE more toward those with hands-on training and professional development in the field of structural pest management.


The six ESA branches include five North American branches: Eastern, North Central, Pacific, Southeastern, and Southwestern. Their members are states/provinces of the USA, Canada, and Mexico, with Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands in the Southeastern Branch and the US territories of the Pacific Ocean in the Pacific Branch. All other nations and territories comprise the sixth, International Branch.


ESA and the Entomological Foundation provide annual honors and awards to recognize scientists, educators, and students, who have distinguished themselves through their contributions to entomology, and offer limited financial assistance for academic study.[1]

Each of the six branches of the ESA give out the "John Henry Comstock Graduate Student Award annually for achievement by a graduate student.
