Requirements for Bringing in Specimens to be Examined
Bringing in insect specimens:
Insects must be in rubbing alcohol in a sealed jar with contact information taped to the jar.
Bringing in plant specimens:
Since there are a couple of plant diseases (downy mildew, late blight) capable of causing widespread crop destruction, all plant material must be in a new zip-locked bag to avoid spreading spores. Name and contact information should be written in permanent marker on the bag.
We thank you for considering these requirements when bringing in specimens.
