Identify an Insect?

Hire an entomologist to identify an insect. Let us find out what is bugging you…

Whatsthatbug.com has been helping people identify insects for over 20 years. For the record, we have made more than 25,000 insect identifications (and counting).

Our insect identification services start from $19. For you, it is as simple as 1-2-3…

  1. Send us the images (you can upload up to 3 images of the same insect. Sometimes it is a good idea to click the image next to a measuring tape or a coin to give us an idea of the scale. A zoomed-in image helps us look at specifics.
  2. Describe the insect in your own words. Talk about its behavior or anything that you saw that stood out.
  3. Knowing the location of an insect is critical in identifying it correctly. Please let us know where you saw the insect.

With all this information, an entomologist will weigh in and identify the insect for you!
