Forensic Entomology is the application of the study of insects and other arthropods to legal issues. It can be divided in three subfields: urban, stored-product and medicolegal. Medicolegal Entomology is the science of using insect evidence to uncover circumstances of interest to the law, often related to a crime. The time of death, for example, can usually be determined using insect evidence gathered from and around a corpse, provided the evidence is properly collected, preserved and analyzed by an appropriately educated forensic entomologist.
