Aphid identification

Of the 600-odd species of aphids in Britain, very few are pests but, until recently, identifying them was a specialist job.

Our on-line pages on photo-identification, cover 65 genera and over 200 aphid species.

Blood-sucking haematophagous arthropods such as ticks, biting midges, mosquitoes and tabanids transmit disease to humans and livestock.

Our on-line pages cover photo-identification of the main genera, and some species.

Epidemics and invasive pests, like bad stats or bad science, can have real bad effects.

We provide on-line critiques about the detrimental effects of poor science in major medical, veterinary and environmental issues.
