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 at 8:45 a.m. or at 5:44 p.m. on 88.9 WCVE, Richmond’s Public Radio station.

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

Insect Collections

Dr. Art Evans and producer Steve Clark have a rambling, yet engaging conversation about creepy basements, preserving spiders for scientific study, and introducing college students to the fascinating world of insects by making an insect collection.

Beetles of the Bull Run Mountains

The WBY team of  Evans & Clark discusses the particulars of one of Evans’ latest projects, a beetle survey of the Bull Run Mountains.

Five hundred fifty-five species of beetles in 78 families are known from the area thus far, 72 of which are recorded in Virginia for the first time.

A synoptic collection from the project was presented to the Bull Run Mountains Conservancy for use  in their educational programs.

Insects In Captivity

Entomologist Art Evans and WCVE producer Steve Clark compare and contrast insect zoos and butterfly houses. Butterfly houses are especially popular largely because their tenants do not suffer the stigma of being insects. Some of the great insects zoos and butterfly houses in eastern North America are found in Cincinnati, Montreal, New Orleans, Raleigh, and Washington, DC.
