My name is Jack DeAngelis and I retired from
Oregon State University in 2004 where I was an
Extension urban entomologist for 16 years (see my

Insects"). I have over 25 years of experience in
urban entomology, agricultural research, Cooperative
Extension, and teaching, and I hold a PhD in
Entomology. The 'Bugs website is now my main focus.
The 'Bugs site is an expansion of a website I
started in 1999 while at OSU.
This site is about insects and their close relatives.
While most of these critters are harmless or even

the difference between pest situations that need
attention and those that may not, and second, in cases
where pest control is needed our goal is to help you
proceed in a safe, responsible and environmentally
