APHIS Launches Pest & Disease Web Page

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has launched a new “Pests and Diseases” web page.

The new page lists all pest and disease programs managed by APHIS as part of its mission to protect American agriculture and natural resources.

On the new page, users can search by type (plant, animal), keyword (avian, fruit fly, cotton), or by the specific pest or disease (coconut rhinoceros beetle, brucellosis). You can also scroll through the page, which lists the pests and diseases alphabetically and includes a corresponding image.

APHIS created the web page to make it easier for users to find critical information on pests and diseases. With this tool, members of the public will have the information they need to report pests and diseases and together we can protect America’s agriculture and natural resources.

To visit the page, go to www.aphis.usda.gov/pests-and-diseases or click the Pests and Diseases link under the Resources tab on the APHIS homepage.
