About This Website:

This website is a service of Extension Entomology, part of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. This website is not intended to provide in-depth information on insects, it is for identification purposes only. Insect control information and contact information for all of Extension Entomology can be found here. Many of the images and blog articles contain external links to more information. 

Many of these photos were submitted for identification. We make every effort to retain the name of the photographer and give full credit. However, our database sometimes loses the photographer's name and we would be glad to give photo credit for your image if you let us know which one is yours.
