Onsite Rearing Classes at NCSU

Professor Allen Carson Cohen joined the Entomology Department (now Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology) at North Carolina State University as a research professor, he has taught several in person (on-site) classes in insect rearing.  He has also taught workshops in insect rearing and insect diets.  The on-site rearing courses have received high praise from nearly every student who has taken these offerings, and students especially appreciated the “know your insect” approach to rearing and the emphasis on treating rearing as a science with rigor and cross-disciplinary emphasis.
