Here’s a page where you can get assistance in insect identification about the insects in your garden and the controls (if need be) that will work on them.
I suspect you’re going to find out that many of these insects are beneficial. 🙂
And you’re going to want more of them. But you never know.
If you’ve been bitten by an insect, we do not provide medical advice nor can we respond immediately to your submission.
Please see a qualified medical person.
Insects Already Identified
If you can’t find your insect in the above pages, then follow these guidelines and we’ll do our best to identify your insect.
Here Are The Four Steps To Get Your Insect Identified
Important: If you don’t fill in the information in this section properly, your insect will no longer be posted.
A good title and description help Moni to identify the insect and other readers to find it online. Sometimes a small difference in location or what the insect is doing/eating/nearby plants etc makes the difference in identifying what specific insect it is. We need more than a picture.
- Step One: Add your name:
- Step Two: Post Title This is what you’d enter into a Google search to find your insect. (e.g. Brown caterpillar with red stripe)
- Step Three: Fill in Post Content: Tell us your State/Province, closest town, and what the insect was doing/eating when you found it (nearby plants?) Note: We only identify insects from North America.
- Step Four: Upload your image.
We do our best but this isn’t a guaranteed speedy process.
What is really important is that you THANK MONI after she has identified your insect for you. Here’s her book on the subject btw.
