Friday Photo: Lily of the Nile and Insects


Manuel Casillas, an insect detection specialist with Ag, Weights and Measures, captured this photo of a beautiful Lily of the Nile in front of the historic County Insectary in Chula Vista.

The insectary building was built in about 1920 to help with the lemon groves surrounding the site. Currently, it serves as an office for about 10 inspectors in the County’s Pest Detection Program and has a dedicated room to all the memorabilia the department has obtained throughout the years.

Share your fabulous photos! If you see a coworker getting the job done, a beautiful sunset over your office or wonderful County program being offered—snap a pic and submit it. Be sure to include information about the photo and your name. One image will be posted to InSite every Friday.
