Morgan Jackson, a PhD student in the School of Environmental Sciences, was featured on The Great Wild Indoors on The Nature of Things Feb. 9. Jackson was part of a crew examining common household bugs during the episode, which airs at 8 p.m. He also discussed the topic with the Toronto Star Feb. 4. Jackson, a self-described “fly guy,” said most bugs and insects pose little risk and, in some cases, can actually help people. He is the technical editor of the Canadian Journal of Arthropod Identification and works in the Insect Collection lab at U of G with Prof. Steve Marshall.
