Get the Bug


You may have completed your household census, but there is another census coming up as well.

The UGA Cooperative Extension is conducting its annual Great Georgia Pollinator Census on August 21 and 22, and it is counting on volunteers to help.

People of all ages can participate. Simply watch a flowering plant in a garden or a park for 15 minutes and count and identify the pollinators – bees, butterflies, wasps, flies and other insects – that land on it.

An insect identification guide and a page to upload counts are available at
