Missing Halloween already? Looking for some good creepy crawly shows to watch late at night … in the dark … all alone? Shows that … let you earn CE hours?! Then head to the UC Davis Entomology Seminars website and watch archived webcasts of their fall seminars. The website address is http://entomology.ucdavis.edu/courses/deptseminar/seminars.cfm.

There are lots of topics that can help you answer questions from the public in the office and in classes, and just increase your general entomology knowledge.
