  • Our New Kissing Bug Citizen Science Website is Launched!

    The TAMU College of Veterinary Medicine and Department of Entomology have a collaborative Citizen Science Program to learn about kissing bug and Chagas disease risk in the state. The team is interested in receiving safely-collected kissing bugs encountered by the public across the state.  Please visit and share the new project website to support the citizen science program.  Among the features of the website is an interactive map, so readers can see in real-time areas of the state from which kissing bugs have been submitted by the public.   Also, there is a contact form that allows readers to upload some encounter information and photos of suspect kissing bugs and for identification prior to submission to the research team for diagnostic testing for the Trypanosoma cruzi parasite.
