What's Bugging You?

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.

Buck Moths Revisted

Entomologist Dr. Art Evans and WCVE producer Steve Clark talk about the buck moth, a beautiful fall insect that earned its common name as a result of some curious and inaccurate observations.
