      Dear Joe:

      Thanks for the heads-up on the native bee pollinator section of the ESA meetings.  I am passing the news on to colleagues at NAPPC.  As soon as I get a free moment I'll write you on other topics.

      Dear Pacific Branch member:

      Happy New Year!

      This second formal announcement is again inviting you to attend the Pacific Branch of the Entomological Society of America's 94th annual meeting that is scheduled at the Grove Hotel in downtown Boise, Idaho from April 11, 2010 through April 14, 2010. Our theme for 2010 is “Entomology, Sustainability, Environmental Quality” and I think we have a firm foundation for what appears to be shaping into a very solid program. We have launched our website and it can be viewed http://ipm.wsu.edu/PBESA.

      There are several deadlines to which I would like to draw to your attention. Specifically, the deadline for early bird online registration is February 15, 2010. Please take advantage of the early bird reservation because the registration fee jumps substantially after February 15. Registration can be completed online and fees can be paid by credit card. 

      Time is getting short— The deadline for submission of abstracts (for posters, symposia papers, and 10 minute papers) and nominations for awards is also February 15, 2010.

      Photographs are now being accepted for the Photo Salon. They should be submitted directly to Marshall Johnson by US Mail on a CD. The deadline is March 5, 2010. Specific details are on the website under the heading Photo Salon.

      Our venue is the Grove Hotel in downtown Boise http://www.grovehotelboise.com/  The room reservation at the guaranteed group rate of $119 per night is available through March 19, 2010. Please take advantage of this negotiated rate.

      We have scheduled 9 symposia. These include:

      •Developing Approaches to Spotted Wing Drosophila

      •Biocontrol and IPM in Cereal Leaf Beetle

      •Investigating the Connections Between Integrated Pest Management and Water Quality,

      •New Directions in IPM for Structural, Veterinary, and Public Health Pests

      •Protecting and Preserving Western Bee Pollinators

      •Tree Fruit Symposium

      •Student Symposium, Sustainability in the Evolving World: Insects, Ecosystem, and Economics

      •Thrips Biology, Control, and Resistance Management

      •New Developments in Control Technologies

      We hope to have a competitive Linnaean games session. I encourage all students from among all the institutions, departments, and units to assemble a team and try their luck. Games Chair Michael Costello is sure to keep you on your tarsi during the competition. And remember, the winning team earns a $500 sponsorship toward attending the National ESA meeting scheduled for next December in San Diego, CA. Teams and team member names must be submitted to Dr. Costello in advance—check for details on the Branch website.

      If you have any questions concerning the Pacific Branch meeting or Pacific Branch activities please contact me. I am really looking forward to a well-attended Pacific Branch meeting in Boise. I hope to see you there.
