The Big Bug Hunt is asking gardeners to remain vigilant for any pests found lurking in the undergrowth. When you spot one, simply head to The Big Bug Hunt Report a Pest page to log your find. You can report anything from a slug to an aphid – and we also want to track the beneficial insects such as bees you see, too.
By collecting plenty of reports on what's found where, we can develop the technology that will alert you when a pest is heading your way.
