Lily Leaf Beetle Tracker


Naomi Cappuccino of the Department of Biology, Carleton University, Ottawa, Ontario, has called our attention to her new website, Lily Leaf Beetle Tracker, at http://lilybeetletracker.weebly.com/. The primary goal of this site is to map the North American distribution of the lily leaf beetle. The site has a Google map that we hope to populate with input from lily growers everywhere (there’s a form for uploading both the location of beetle sightings and photos). In addition, the site will provide news about a biological control effort based in Ottawa, as well as a page where readers can share their own tips for controlling the beetle.
