Spot a Yard Pest

April 24, 2017

bugSummer in Florida means long hot days and plenty of buzzing insects. The Sunshine State is home to more than 12,000 insect species.

To help identify some of the most common insects and pests found in your backyard, UF/IFAS has developed a searchable website, Landscape Pests, to help identify common insects found in Florida and the Southeastern United States.

Visitors can research for pests using menus based on Plant host, Damage symptom, or Common name or Scientific name.

The website was developed through funding from the Center for Landscape Conservation and Ecology.
