Research & Biological Surveys

At Entomologics, we're highly mobile and flexible in where and when we operate, and we are well equipped for multi-day wilderness experiments as we are a day in the lab.  

 

We are based in North America, but we are able to send our qualified Research Techs to your international field stations.

 

Below are a few examples of recent projects our team has worked on.
