Help with Identification

Pest Management offers citizens an insect identification service.

By Email

You can send an email with images attached to Close-up photos of specimens that are properly focused are much more likely to be identified.

By Mail

You can also send specimens through the mail. To prevent damage, specimens mailed to us should be wrapped in a protective material (for example, tissue paper) and sealed in a rigid container (for example, clean plastic pill bottle) before being placed in the envelope. Include a brief explanatory note with your name and contact information.

In Person

You can drop off specimens directly for the pest management office at 12304 107 Street NW between 8am-3:30pm, Monday-Friday (excluding holidays).

Specimens must be sealed inside a see-through hard container (pill vial, jar or similar), labelled with your name and contact information.

We aim to identify most specimens within three business days.
