Entomology is the study of insects and their relationship to humans, the environment, and other organisms. Entomologists make great contributions to such diverse fields as agriculture, chemistry, biology, human/animal health, molecular science, criminology, and forensics. The study of insects serves as the basis for developments in biological and chemical pest control, food and fiber production and storage, pharmaceuticals epidemiology, biological diversity, and a variety of other fields of science.
It is a study focused on insects and arthropods that impact human health. The job also includes research on behaviour and ecology of various such species. A person in this field gets a good chance to meet and connect with local and state officials. Many universities, government agencies and chemical companies look for people to hire in this field.
