Identification, Images, & Information
For Insects, Spiders & Their Kin
For the United States & Canada


Frass is insect debris and this section of the site is a humorous reference to that. Poor quality images, images from outside North America, north of Mexico, and those that otherwise do not add value to the Guide are moved here. Frassed images will remain here for 30 days after the most recent activity so that comments may be viewed. After that they are automatically removed by the system.
