What's Bugging You?

Dr. Arthur V. Evans teams up with WCVE Public Radio producer Steve Clark for a weekly feature, “What’s Bugging You?,” which airs during NPR’s Morning Edition. The program takes its name from another of Evans’ books “What’s Bugging You – A Fond Look at the Animals We Love to Hate.”

Tune-in each Tuesday morning at 8:35 a.m. on 88.9 WCVE, Richmond’s Public Radio station.

Visit Evans’ Blog or Facebook pages for more insight into the world of insects.

Backyard Bug Survey, Part 2

Entomologist Dr. Art Evans and WCVE producer Steve Clark carry on with the previous week's conversation on the value of backyard bug surveys. Local lists may provide valuable information to scientists studying insect distributions and the effects of climate change, or reveal the first records of an invasive species. You never know what you will find until you start looking!
