ITP advanced taxonomic training videos
Links to a series of videos focused mainly on microscopic identification of specimens of plant-feeding arthropods (and potential pest species), including sections on mites, thrips, aphids, whiteflies, mealybugs, stink bugs, scale insects, leafhoppers/planthoppers, and some moths/caterpillars.

There are also other ID tools and videos that can be searched for here:

Something is in my house
Hello, how are you doing?I hope you are all fine
I have a little problem...
Today i saw a creature (looked like an insect to me ) going under my couch.It was black in the size of my palm, circular and it was very fast.I couldnt see it clearly
I think it had many legs but i am not sure because it was very fast
Then me and my friend saw it leaving the couch and going to the kitchen.
My friend saw it closer and she said it was flat, but we cants say for sure because we didnt manage to see it clearly
It didnt look like a mouse or a rat , more like an insect like a spider or something but it was very circular to be a spider

Green Nature - Insects
The insects section is a beginner's guide (or enthusiast guide) for insect identification. It uses both formal and informal language to divide the topic in a somewhat orderly manner. Pictures and original video are also included.

Because of their popularity among the enthusiast class, topics such as butterflies, dragonflies and spiders are more heavily covered than other topics.

Happy bug hunting to everyone.

LSAM Collection, Baton Rouge, LA
[cite:1572814

The Louisiana State Arthropod Museum (LSAM) contains approximately 1,000,000 specimens of insects and related arthropods. This includes 900,000 pinned, 18,000 fluid-preserved, and 30,000 slide-mounted specimens. Uncurated specimens in various stages of processing vary through time from 50,000 to 100,000. The LSAM is the principal repository for insects and related arthropods in Louisiana. Significant strengths of the collection include Coleoptera (51%) and Hemiptera (28%). Lepidoptera (6%), Diptera (6%) and Hymenoptera (4%), and other orders (5%) make up the balance of the collection. The collection contains 747 paratypes, 1 syntype, 1 allotype, and 1 holotype. Primary types described by LSAM researchers are normally deposited in dedicated type repositories (e.g., the U. S. National Museum, Field Museum of Natural History, etc.). The majority of specimens are from southeastern United States, and most of the remainder are from elsewhere in North America, Mexico, Central and South America. Recent expeditions have added specimens, mainly Coleoptera, from Ecuador and New Zealand.
