Carnegie Museum entomologists frequently
function as unofficial "county extension agents" by
providing identifications, answers to questions, or referrals
for Pennsylvania citizens regarding insect pests, unusual insects,
pet bugs, and other entomological topics. Most of these requests are
telephone inquiries, but many are received through the mail, brought
to the museum by concerned individuals, or sent by conservancies,
government agencies or other specialists. Hundreds of hours each
year are devoted to identification services, many of which can only
be provided by specialists at Carnegie Museum.
Please ask about identification services by phone 412-622-3259, or by
e-mail to an appropriate person (click PEOPLE on top line above).
