Entomologists are mainly employed as researchers or extension officers. As researchers they work in a variety of fields aimed at combating crop pests and insect born human and animal diseases. These fields include: biological control of harmful insects and weeds, use of beneficial insects; integrated pest management, use of insecticides in combination with various other measures to manage pests; development, testing and registration of insecticides; taxonomy, which entails the classification and documentation of our insect fauna; and veterinary and medical entomology. Entomologists are also concerned with the conservation of our insect fauna and the environment. They are also involved in the study of the ecology and biology of insects in relation to other organisms in nature.
