The Clinic can identify common plant insect/arthropod plant pests. Please submit with an Insect Identification submission Form (pdf) and follow the guidelines for insect submission. Depending on the extent of identification, you may be charged $25.00.
The Plant Pest Diagnostic Clinic can offer plant identification as well, but will in most cases defer to Dr. Richard Old, who is contracted by the Department of Crops and Soil Sciences (CSS) to make these identifications. Samples which arrive at the Clinic will be forwarded digitally to Dr. Old. Clients may submit samples directly to Dr. Old by visiting the CSS website: Weed Identification.
Please note that out of state samples will be charged double the service fee.
Please do not include payment with your sample. An invoice will be generated and sent once diagnosis has been completed.
