Looking for the insect identification service?

The Insect Diagnostics Lab at Kansas State University is now closed until further notice.

Please contact your county or district extension office with your request. Our entomology specialists will continue to support identification requests submitted by county and district agricultural and horticultural agents.

Please be aware that our specialists will do their best to handle the increased workload, but sample processing will be slowed, and in some cases may not be possible, due to time constraints.

Looking forward, insect identification will eventually evolve into a fee-based service to help offset costs for sample processing.

We apologize for the inconvenience. It is our hope that we can restore the service in the future when we are assured that our budget is able to sustain it.
