The broad objectives of the International Heteropterists’ Society (IHS) are to promote systematic, biogeographic, and biological studies of Heteroptera and to cultivate cooperative research among heteropterists throughout the world. The Society is organized and operated exclusively for scientific and educational purposes.

The Society holds a meeting every four years at locations around the world, where members give presentations on their work and discuss the directions of the Society. The Society’s website provides an online portal for distribution of information about bugs, including a world bibliography, taxon pages, and membership details.
