Interpretive Summary: ARS is a major player in scientific research in the field of Veterinary Entomology and has the ability to commit to long-term research that is necessary to solve difficult and long-term problems which could be a difficult task for other research institutes like universities. The Executive Editorial Board of Pest Management Science has invited ARS to publish an overview of ARS research in a special issue of the journal to showcase recent accomplishments of ARS scientists. Therefore, scientists at the USDA Center for Medical, Agricultural, and Veterinary Entomology, Gainesville, FL, in conjunction with ARS scientists at other ARS locations have prepared a review of research accomplishment in the area of Veterinary Entomology. Although all projects could not be included, highlights were presented about the fire ant project in Gainesville, Florida, the tick project in Kerrville, Texas, and the screwworm project in Lincoln, Nebraska. Projects from these and other locations were discussed as space permitted.
