Newly Updated "CityBugs" Website Now Available

Dr. Michael Merchant, Professor and Extension Urban Entomologist with the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, announced that his website "Insects in the City" has been updated. Below are some of his remarks concerning the recent changes:

"A significant portion of phone calls to county Extension offices each summer relate to insects around the home and landscape. If you or your office staff sometimes struggle coming up with good answers to those questions, the new Insects in the City website might be for you.

The site is designed to provide information for agents, volunteers and the public on insects, arthropods, and even a few other pests. The site is a major update of the old citybugs website that has been in place for over 10 years. The web address is even the same, http://citybugs.tamu.edu/

What's new with the site?

We're still working on the site, so let me know if you can't find what you're looking for. Besides the features I've listed, there are many other new things that I hope you'll discover. I especially hope you will consider subscribing to the Insect Updates feature. Use the email subscription box, or add the Updates to your RSS feed accumulator. Hope to see you there soon.
