ID Tools helps agency staff to quickly identify pests, including insects, diseases, harmful weeds, and more, through an efficient, online database system. ID Tools currently includes more than 30 websites covering a vast array of pests and pests associated with specific commodities.
Provides information and resources to help you identify unknown species that may be invasive. Species identification is important in helping gardeners, land managers, and landscape architects identify invasive species that can be harmful to local habitats.
An important caveat is it can be difficult to identify species properly on the Internet. If you are unable to identify the species in question, you may want to contact your county office in the Cooperative Extension System (see Land Grant University Website Directory - Extension) and work with Extension personnel to obtain assistance from an area agent or state specialist (select state to see state pest detection contacts).
Or, you may want to use the Ask an Expert feature of eXtension - Invasive Species.
