Insect Identification Services

Whether you are concerned about the potential for an insect to cause harm to you, your home or the environment, or if you are simply curious to know what species an insect is, the Insect Identification Service can identify insects, spiders, ticks and other arthropods that you deliver to the lab by mail or in person.

Accurate identification of an insect is easiest when the specimens are in good condition. Refer to our best practices for submitting your insect for identification to help ensure that your specimen arrives in good shape.
