INTERACTIVE MAPOccurrences in Texas

Thanks to the efforts of many citizen scientists and a dedicated team of student helpers, we are able to map the submissions of kissing bugs from across the state. Explore the locations and seasonality of kissing bugs in Texas by clicking on the map below. Please note that this map reflects only bugs submitted to our research lab by the public, and this is not a perfect method of sampling for assessing disease risk. The absence of submission from a given area does not imply that kissing bugs do not occur there.

Select a bug species from the layers drawer and month using the slider to filter bug activity/submissions.
