Pat Kelley, BCE, Vice President of Insects Limited has received his Master’s Degree in Entomology from the University of Nebraska. Pat has always been a scholar during his 30 years of work with entomology oriented company Insects Limited. His desire to further his education and to pursue a graduate degree is something that he started about four years ago after he turned fifty. The University of Nebraska is one of the only distance learning graduate programs in the country.
Dave Mueller stated: “I have noticed that Pat has really improved his skills in pest problem solving and writing since working on this graduate degree. Pat worked on an odd pest that is rarely studied, the odd beetle (Thylodrias contractus) receiving its name from two very different looking adult genders. Pat has recently taught museum pest management topics at Yale University, New York City, and Buffalo State University. He sits on the Museum Pest Management Working Group. Pat is truly an international expert in museum pest management.”
