Why do we call it the Insect Identification Center?
- Because we handle all insects and their relatives --- spiders, millipedes, and others.
- There are between 10 and 20 thousand species of insects in New Hampshire, so identifying an insect, spider or tick is often the crucial first step towards solving a problem.
$5 fee per specimen.
