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.
