This year, instead of the annual silent auction, the Student and Early Professional Affairs Committee of the Entomological Society of Canada is selling bandanas to raise money for the Annual Scholarship Fund.

This 100% cotton bandana, available in red or charcoal gray, is printed with the logo insects* of the ESC and all of the regional entomological societies, plus a bonus arctic wolf spider to represent the northern territories. The beautiful artwork is by Mary Capaldi, and you can find more of their work, much of it entomology-themed, here: https://linktr.ee/marycapaldi.

You can pre-order bandanas on Etsy or by contacting Catherine Scott by email or on twitter. We anticipate that the bandanas will be available for shipping around the time of the 2021 online annual meeting, in plenty of time for holiday gift-giving.

*list of featured taxa:

ESC – Grylloblatta campodeiformis
ESBC – Boreus elegans
ESAb – Apamea devastator
ESS – Melanoplus bivittatus
ESM – Cicindela formosa generosa
ESO – Danaus plexippus
SEQ – Limenitis arthemis arthemis
AES – Rhagoletis pomonella
Arctic wolf spider – Pardosa glacialis

Mockups of two bandanas featuring line drawings of insects and spiders. One is charcoal grey with white insects and the other is bright red with white insects.

Un bandana orné d’insectes pour soutenir les étudiants de la SEC

Cette année, au lieu des enchères silencieuses annuelles, le Comité des affaires étudiantes et des jeunes professionnels de la Société d’entomologie du Canada vend des bandanas pour amasser des fonds pour le Fonds des bourses de la SEC.

Ces bandanas sont faits de coton à 100%, sont disponibles en rouge ou gris anthracite, et ont des imprimés montrant les insectes* des logos de la SEC et de toutes les sociétés entomologiques régionales, en plus d’une lycose glaciale pour représenter les territoires. Cette belle œuvre d’art est de Mary Capaldi, et vous pouvez trouver davantage de ses œuvres, en grande partie sur le thème de l’entomologie, ici : https://linktr.ee/marycapaldi.

Vous pouvez précommander des bandanas sur Etsy ou en contactant Catherine Scott par courriel ou sur Twitter. Nous prévoyons que les bandanas seront prêts pour l’expédition au moment de la réunion annuelle en ligne de 2021, donc bien à temps pour offrir des cadeaux de Noël.

 Re: 2021 PEST MANAGEMENT RESEARCH REPORT – Insect Pests and Plant Diseases – CALL FOR REPORTS

INSTRUCTIONS FOR PUBLISHING RESULTS OF THE 2021 CROP YEAR FOR AUTHORS AND SECTION EDITORS

One of the objectives of the Pest Management Research Report (PMRR) is to facilitate the exchange of information on Integrated Pest Management (IPM) among persons involved in research and advisory services on IPM of insect pests and plant diseases of importance to the agri-food industry in Canada. To this end, the PMRR is published annually as a compilation of research reports by federal and provincial government, university and industry research and advisory personnel. These reports aid the development of recommendations for insect and disease management programs throughout Canada. They report on all aspects of pest management, including cultivar and management responses, and are available to support the registration of pest control products.

To increase the value of the report, everyone in Canada who is conducting studies involving pest management in agriculture is urged to report their results from 2021 in the format outlined in the attached guide (also available in French). The reports should ideally be 1-2 pages long and may be submitted in either French or English. Authors are requested to ensure they have the registrants’ approval to submit data about their products to a publicly available journal.

Because the Canadian Agricultural Insect Pest Review is no longer published, the PMRR now includes a section – Surveys and Outbreaks: Insects and Mites, to fill the information gap left by the loss of this annual publication. Results of field surveys to assess presence, abundance and distribution of new or established species can be reported in this section in the same format as for other reports in the PMRR. Reports of insect and mite outbreaks should include acreage of crop infested and location(s), control actions taken or product(s) used to minimize crop loss, crop loss assessment where possible, and results of control actions.

Full writing and submission instructions are here.

The 1995-2020 editions of the PMRR are available for viewing and download at http://phytopath.ca/publication/pmrr/.
