The entomology department at the university I recently retired from released 32 computer-verified training tutorials on arthropods as FREE downloads.

These tutorials are useful for training master gardeners, pest control technicians, agricultural workers or students in any setting requiring knowledge of arthropods. Even homeowners can profit from the information and photographs provided by these tutorials.

The tutorials are helpful at almost any educational level to expose students to the insects, mites, ticks and other arthropods that surround us.

These tutorials will install on any Windows operating system, but will not install on the newer 64-bit systems. This is the main reason for releasing these tutorials for free use.

The tutorials cover beneficial arthropods, household and structural pests, medically important arthropods, occasional invaders, landscape and agriculturally important arthropods.

All of these tutorials are available from the department's Buggy Software Web site at http://entnemdept.ifas.ufl.edu/fasulo/pests/software/
