USDA/APHIS Launches Webpage for Pests and DiseasesMarch 27, 2019
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) launched a new "Pests and Diseases" webpage that lists all pest and disease programs managed by APHIS as part of its mission to protect American agriculture and natural resources.
Users of the new webpage can search by type (plant, animal), keyword (avian, fruit fly, cotton), or by the specific pest or disease (coconut rhinoceros beetle, brucellosis). The page also lists the pests and diseases alphabetically and includes a corresponding image. APHIS created the webpage to make it easier for its customers to find critical information on pests and diseases of concern. With this tool, the public will have the information they need to report pests and diseases.
The webpage is available at the APHIS homepage.
