  Abstract  
  In summary, Urban Entomology in the United States enjoyed extraordinary growth in its early years. It continues to do so internationally, as evidenced by the ever increasing attendance at these conferences. In the United States, however, the discipline is at a critical cross-roads, as it has become unduly fragmented from its historical roots in public health entomology. A major challenge at the start of the 21st Century is to expand the reach of urban entomology into related disciplines, including environmental, veterinary, public health, horticultural, and the social sciences.
