Within the ornamentals program, main responsibilities involve Integrated Pest Management (IPM) of ornamental and turf insects in the homeowner and Lawn & Garden business settings. Duties involve agent and master gardener training and consumer education in these areas. Current direction emphasizes the "ten most important" ornamental insect pests and non-honey bee pollinators for the garden. Additional responsibilities covered are 4-H Entomology (emphasizing curriculum development) and forage crops.
