Insect Identification

Insect specimens from farms, forests and households may be identified if good quality specimens are submitted. Submit specimens in plastic containers, such as empty pill bottles or film containers. Please do not tape specimens to letters. Details about where the specimen was collected will help us to make a positive identification.

Bring or mail specimen to our office at:

Coos County OSU Extension Service
631 Alder Street
Myrtle Point OR 97458

These specimens will be evaluated in a timely manner. If we are unable to identify the particular insect species they will be forwarded to the OSU campus for identification. Results will be mailed to you.

Another location for insect information go to the Pacific Northwest Nursery Integrated Pest Managment or see Urban Entomology.
