Have Bug Questions? Ask our Expert Entomologist

There is a lot that we do not understand about insects and why they do what they do. To find out, most people would think to talk with an entomologist; however, not many people may know how to go about finding one. Triple S Services has made talking to an entomologist easy. Triple S Services have a full-time entomologist available to answer all your bug questions.

What is an Entomologist?

An entomologist is a scientist who studies insects. Since there are so many different types of insects, most entomologists only study a specific family of insects. Entomologists study insect behavior, morphology, nutrition, and ecology. Entomologists help to produce information about endangered species, fragile ecosystems and our environment. They also help prevent the spread of serious diseases in plants and animals. Entomologists can be found in such careers as medicine, law, pharmacology, veterinary medicine, teaching, and research.
