Something Bugging You? K-State Lab Identifies Insects

MANHATTAN, Kan. – The Insect Diagnostic Lab, is part of the university’s Department of Entomology. “The goal of the lab, is to provide a prompt, yet accurate diagnosis of insects and insect-related problems. Depending on the individual specimen, we can make an identification of an insect’s order, family, genus or species level.”  More about K-State’s Insect Diagnostic Lab, including how to submit a sample through a county or district Extension office, is available on the Web here
