Major citizen science project tracks garden bugs to identify when and how they spread
- The Big Bug Hunt is an international research project to track when and how garden bugs spread.
- Participants are helping to create a pest-alert system that will warn gardeners when pests are heading their way.
- Anyone can take part and reporting a bug takes seconds. The more reports received, the quicker the pest-alert system can be developed.
- Now-in its second year, The Big Bug Hunt has already identified patterns in the way some major pests spread. Additional reports will improve accuracy and speed development of the pest-alert system. BigBugHunt.com
