What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Hi Daniel,
A Ph.D. candidate at the University of Arizona is seeking information on White-lined Sphinx Moth larvae, especially large aggregations of them.
I have posted her “Wanted!” poster on the LepSoc Facebook page, and I told her I’d also send them to you (PDF and JPEG formats, attached) to be considered for sharing on What’s That Bug?

Hi Julian,
We are unable to post large files to What’s That Bug? so we included a link to the large pdf and a smaller version as a visual.

We will be away from the office for a few days.  We have postdated some letters and photos so that there will be daily updates to our site, however, we will not be responding to any letters until we return.

We will be away from the office for the first week in November and we will not have internet connectivity, so we will not be responding to any identification requests. In our absence, kindly search our extensive archive using our effective search engine.

We must be away from the office for several weeks and we will not be checking our mail nor responding to any identification requests or comments.  Please forgive the inconvenience.  We have postdated several submissions to go live each day during our absence so our faithful readers will continue to get new content on a daily basis.  We will return in mid August.  Maybe we will be lucky enough to see a Luna Moth while we are back east.

We’re back, and we are sad to report that we did not see any Luna Moths, however, we did see Fireflies, Tiger Swallowtails and numerous other insects.

I must say that the new design is not user-friendly.  I type, for example, “small yellow bug” into the search field and only links come up.  I then have to click on every link to see an image.  Find myself using your site less and less.  So sorry to complain.  Anna Carreon

Dear Anna,
We are really sorry to hear that as you have been such a faithful contributor over the years.  We will bring this to the attention of our webmaster to see if we can return to the former way the search engine worked.  Our editorial staff doesn’t particularly like the way the search engine is currently working either, and we have taken to using google and selecting images after typing in what we want to find, followed by “whatsthatbug.com” if we want to search our own archives.  Again, thanks so much for your input and we will try to remedy this problem.

UPDATE:  July 27, 2013
We just learned the problem has been corrected.  Images are once again appearing when using the search engine.
