Welcome

This website allows you to search for insects by name, type, or by photo and describes over 200 different species of common insects from Wisconsin. While certain insects can be found across the country, many insects can be region-specific.  Thus, this online tool is most relevant for residents of Wisconsin and neighboring states.  If you aren’t able to identify your particular insect or would like additional information, visit our main Insect Diagnostic Lab website.

In addition, there are a number of UW-Extension factsheets and other resources available for insect pests under the “pest resources” menu.
