Pest Prevention & Control

Pest Identification

Identifying a pest is the first step to preventing and controlling it. Once you have identified your pest you can learn about it so you can develop a control plan.

Look It Up

Identify the pest online using an illustrated pest identification guide. You can also find printed guides from your library.

Ask an Expert

Consult a pest expert through a cooperative extension office, such as the OSU Insect ID Clinic. A pest professional, farm advisor, agricultural commissioner, or USDA biologist can also help.
