Illinois Dept. of Public Health
IDPH entomologists accept specimens (insects, spiders, ticks, etc.) for identification from Illinois residents.

1 Submit specimens in leak-proof, crush-resistant containers. If possible, do not tape or glue specimens.
2 Certain specimens (e.g., ticks, insect larvae) should be in 70% ethanol or isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol.
3 Mail specimens in crush-proof containers (plastic vials, med/specimen bottles, boxes, etc.) sealed inside plastic bags.
4 Specimens will be identified, but not tested for the presence of pathogens or disease.
5 Most specimens are identified and a written report mailed the same day they are received.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Pictorial Keys to Arthropods (and other animals) of Public Health Significance
Although this series of pictorial keys is focused on animals that affect human health, the keys are quite general and would seem to be useful to Bug Guide contributors. There is a general key to arthropod orders and then a series of separate keys for many of the individual groups. Comments welcome.

University of California Statewide Integrated Pest Management Program
IPM is a system of dealing with pests that uses information about them to control them in a variety of ways- not just pesticides, but physical barriers, changes in farming/gardening practices, biological control, etc. All of these are supposed to be integrated so they reinforce each other.

Because IPM is based on knowledge about the pests, IPM references tend to have a great deal of useful and interesting information about the species covered. This site is no exception- The "Pest Notes", especially, are very informative and cover a wide variety of bugs (among other types of pests).
