What’s bugging you, Florida? Tell us!
If you live in Florida, or visit here, you know that the
Sunshine State is home to many bugs. Maybe there are things you wish you knew about them….
Thousands of species of insects, spiders, mites and other creepy-crawly arthropods roam the state — some beneficial to people, some potentially harmful to people, some neither, some both.
You may have a few questions about Florida’s bugs. That’s why
UF/IFAS entomology experts want to make sure you get the facts about Florida’s bugs. So, as part of the 2014 BugWeek@UF celebration, we’re launching an effort to develop a comprehensive FAQ document on Florida’s bugs, with frequently asked questions and science-based answers.
You can visit the FAQ at the IFAS Blogs What’s Bugging You, Florida? site right here.
And if you have questions that aren’t addressed in the current version of the FAQ, let us know — write to firstname.lastname@example.org. Many of the questions submitted will be featured on the UF/IFAS Facebook and Twitter pages during 2014 BugWeek@UF, May 19-23. And the online FAQ will continue to grow as new material arrives.
