About us & Advertising on 'Bugs

- Who we are and what we do -

Summary: 'Bugs is about helping you tell the difference between good bugs and bad bugs, and how to safely deal with the few bad bugs in safe and responsible ways.

About 'Bugs

My name is Jack DeAngelis and I retired from Oregon State University in 2004 where I was an Extension urban entomologist for 16 years (see my resume; and/or google "Jack DeAngelis Insects"). I have over 25 years of experience in urban entomology, agricultural research, Cooperative Extension, and teaching, and I hold a PhD in Entomology. The 'Bugs website is now my main focus. The 'Bugs site is an expansion of a website I started in 1999 while at OSU.

This site is about insects and their close relatives. While most of these critters are harmless or even beneficial, a few pose a risk to our property or health. The goal of 'Bugs is first to help you tell the difference between pest situations that need attention and those that may not, and second, in cases where pest control is needed our goal is to help you proceed in a safe, responsible and environmentally friendly way.

Thanks for visiting,

Jack DeAngelis
