NCSU’s Urban Structural Entomology program deals with pests that commonly cause nuisance problems, economic damage, and public health concerns in and around structural, residential, and industrial settings. The program blends basic and applied research components with traditional education and extension-outreach activities about pests that affect people and the buildings in which they live and work. Current research efforts focus on major pest groups such as cockroaches, bed bugs, ants, and termites. Extension efforts cover all major arthropod groups as well as the management of commensal rodents and other vertebrate “nuisance” pests
