The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is launching a new “Pests and Diseases” webpage that lists all pest and disease programs managed by APHIS. Users can search by type, keyword or by the specific pest or disease. The page also lists the pests and diseases alphabetically and includes a corresponding image. 

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.
