81st Annual Pacific Northwest Insect Management Conference


The meeting will be held virtually in two morning sessions on January 10th and 11th, 2022. 

❖ Pesticide license recertification credits may be offered for Oregon. Check here for details or contact the organizers

❖ Registration costs and links coming soon. Advanced registration is required for meeting access. 

❖ Student paper competition (good experience for the student, plus a monetary reward for winners). 


Please plan to attend (virtually), submit a paper and make a presentation, or display a poster. We'll participate in informal discussions about insect/arthropod pest research in field, row, vegetable, seed, small fruit, and other crops in the Pacific Northwest and Intermountain West. This is not a “spray” meeting only - reports dealing with biological control, IPM, info-chemicals, etc., are encouraged and welcomed. We invite you to make a 10 to 15-minute oral presentation at the conference. If time only allows for one presentation per person then we will ask applicants to choose which presentation they would prefer to conduct; additional reports can be submitted and will be included in the online Proceedings. Each written report should be included in one of the following general sections:

Section I: Invasive Pests, Emerging Pests, and Hot Topics of Interest
Section II: Bees and Pollinators
Section III: Environmental Toxicology and Regulatory Issues
Section IV: Field Crop Pests (includes cereals and vegetables)
Section V: Potato Pests
Section VI: Pests of Wine Grapes & Small Fruits
Section VII: Pests of Turf and Ornamentals
Section VIII: New and Current Product Development
Section IX: Extension & Consulting: Updates & Notes from the Field
