This is not a publication. Please visit the diagnostic services page for complete information on submitting your insect for identification: http://www.lsuinsects.org/public_services.html .
The Louisiana State Arthropod Museum will provide accurate identification of an insect, a brief biological summary and diagnosis of entomological problems that may be associated with the organisms in question. In many cases, we can also provide links to informative online information.
Please note, however, that we are not always able to provide exact species determinations, and our ability to identify poorly preserved specimens is limited. We do not endorse or recommend specific pest control products. If you have a digital camera or other method of creating digital images, you can e-mail those to us as attached files instead of sending the specimens. Poor quality images or pictures that do not show diagnostic features limit our ability to provide a precise identification, so we may request submission of a physical sample.
