The Beers Laboratory is located at the Tree Fruit Research and Extension Center in Wenatchee, WA, but we work on tree fruits statewide. Our goal is to help Washington’s tree fruit growers solve insect and mite pest problems, and share our science at the regional, state, and national level. Our motto is ‘no bug left behind’, with research projects covering all of the state’s major tree fruit crops (apple, pear, cherry, stone fruit) and many of their pests and natural enemies (it’s a long list).
Part of that goal is outreach to stakeholders, and training graduate and undergraduate students, post-docs, interns, and hosting visiting scientists. Wenatchee is a great place to live and work!
