Who We Are

Mike Sandstrom is the founder of insectforecast.com, and has been monitoring insect migration data and weather patterns across the country’s major crop production regions since 2006.

He is a graduate of Northern Illinois University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology and a Master of Science in Geography and Climatology.

What started as a college project for Mike is now a helpful tool for forecasting migration patterns of crop-destroying insects (such as Corn Earworm and Western Bean Cutworm) throughout major growing regions of the United States and southern Canada.
