ABSTRACT
The article features the First Detector Entomology Training Project, a series of Web pages for people with little or no experience to identify insects, as well as learn about insects and arthropods, insect collecting and insect photography. A train-the-trainer general entomology training course for first detector educators including county extension agents and Master Gardeners, and first detectors such as border inspectors and homeowners, will be developed by the project.
