The new interim director of Iowa State University's Pest Management and the Environment (PME) program and coordinator of the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program is no stranger to agriculture. Carol Pilcher was raised on a farm/ranch in southeastern Colorado and has been involved with agriculture most of her life. She was active in 4-H and completed 10 years of projects including gardening, crops, weeds, and entomology. During the summers, Carol collected insects for her 4-H entomology project and operated a light trap for an entomologist at Colorado State University. This is where she started her entomology career path.
