WyeBugs is an independent partnership of professional scientists, based in Kent on the Wye Campus of Imperial College London.

We specialise in providing insect diagnostic and support services to the horticultural and agricultural industry, as well as solving problems associated with insects in the domestic environment.

Our services should be of particular interest to the producers of chemical pesticides and biocontrol agents; their distributors; growers using or planning to use IPM; those interested in trapping and repelling insects, including blood sucking arthropods; and those in the field of compost and manure management.

We have extensive DEFRA and PSD approved experimental facilities available including laboratories; glasshouses; field plots; and controlled environments ranging from incubators to medium scale insectories.
