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 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.
