Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get an insect identified?
If we cannot identify an insect here at our office, we will send it to the Virginia Tech insect ID lab at no charge. Please collect several good samples of the insect in question and bring them to our office either alive or preserved in some rubbing alcohol. Results are usually back within a week.
Pest Management Guides Available
The 2016 version of Virginia Cooperative Extension's Pest Management Guides are now available on our website. The guides cover Field Crops, Home Grounds and Animals, and Horticultural and Forest Crops.
