Free Insect Identification

Ecologic Entomology is proud to provide free insect identification services.  Digital picture submissions are preferred, but we also accept expired specimens by mail. Pictures should be in JPEG or TIFF formats only.

Email close-up pictures to: info@ecologicentomology.com. Please try to submit only in-focus pictures.

Send expired specimens to:

Ecologic Entomology
Attention: Insect I.D.
56 Wareham Street, Suite 2B
Boston, MA 02118

Please mail only expired specimens in double zip-locked bags. Be sure to include your contact info and the specific place and environment where the specimen was found.

Please contact us prior to coming to our office to be sure we have staff onsite to identify your specimen(s).

Please note that our expertise is urban entomology (i.e. pests found in and around structures). We do not provide ID services for forestry, horticulture, or medical entomology.

Specimens will be destroyed after identification.

Let’s talk. We’re here to assist you with any pest concern you may have.
