The types of entomology include agricultural entomology, techniques in entomology, medical entomology, herpetology and ornithology, and forensic entomology. All the specializations play a major part in contributing to the bigger entomology discipline.
The studies in entomology concern mostly the insects that are found in varying habitats and climates on the surface of the earth. Entomology discusses the influence of pests and insects on the overall balance of an ecosystem and the impact on the other organisms.
According to the habitats, several techniques are used for applying entomology studies to the treatment of insects and minimising the harmful effects like destruction of crops. The effects of pesticides might be hazardous through consumption of cereals and other vegetables.
Several agencies in the research of insects including their identification and classification interact frequently in the entomology domain to share knowledge and latest updates. The members of the entomology research groups are entitled to greater interaction to boost entomology research and find better ways of protecting the insects’ population.
The bionomics of pests including mosquito population is studied by researchers, as also the effects of insecticides in case of the crops. This also provides more insight to the details of taxonomy and identification of new forms of insects with respect to the biological classification. The class insect has been used by the taxonomists to refer to the insects, which in turn falls in the phylum anthropoda and kingdom Animalia in the seven-level hierarchy. In this arrangement, entomology studies determine ants to belong to the order Hymenoptera and family Formicidae. Entomologist Frederick Smith of the 19th century specialized in the Hymenoptera studies.
The representatives from government agencies and ethics bodies also play a vital role to address the issues governing the social and environmental role in preserving the insects’ population. This brings thought-provoking deliberations for the best application of entomology discipline. Industry participants also encourage greater coordination between the amateurs and professionals in the entomology practice.
The bionomics and analysis of the seasonal prevalence of mosquitoes shed light on their transmission capabilities and the worth of insects. The degree of residual transmission and those related to insecticide effectiveness in various environments can be studied according to the prescribed guidelines. The eggs, pupae, and larvae improve and grow depending on the conditions of the environment.
Etnomology studies also seek to find the morphological characteristics in the insects. The tiger mosquito of the family Culicidae has striped body with that is white, and legs have a combination of black and white. The length of the Asian tiger mosquito is 2 to 10 mm, while the males are about 20% smaller in size than females. There are other species with a similar morphology, as the Ochlerotatus Canadensis of North America has similar legs.
The species that causes urban filariasis, Culex quinquefasciatus, survives and spreads in wet pits, cesspits, septic tanks and latrines. Other sites favourable to those are wells and garbage dump sites. Blowflies might carry disease agents into the food, as they are present in large numbers in the latrines.
