Welcome to the American Entomological Society

The American Entomological Society is the oldest continuously-operating entomological society in the Western Hemisphere, founded on March 1, 1859. We support entomological research, education and outreach through multiple publications, and public meetings. We also encourage anyone interested in entomology to become a member. The join page contains  more information about different membership options as well as the perks of joining.

The AES currently publishes two journals, Transactions of the AES and Entomological News. Subscriptions are available through the publications page.
