Murphree Displays Exhibit at Insect Festival

Steve Murphree (Biology) recently attended the annual meeting of the Tennessee Entomological Society in Knoxville. Most years before this meeting begins, some of the entomologists set up an Insect Festival and this year 26 entomologists participated. The 2010 Insect Festival was held on Thursday, October 14, at the Hollingsworth Auditorium of the University of Tennessee Plant Sciences Building. They had 126 home schooled children and parents from Blount County attend the Insect Festival. Dr. Murphree’s interactive exhibit was titled “Termite Trails.”
