Insect & Spider Identification

The Division will identify spiders and insects for residents of New Hampshire only, free of charge.

To submit a spider or insect for identification please fill out the form and either mail the form with the specimen to the Division or bring it to the New Hampshire Health and Human Services Building in Concord (29 Hazen Drive) and leave the specimen and paperwork in the Department of Agriculture identification drop box (the staff at the front desk can direct you). Care should be taken with the specimen to ensure it arrives in a condition that enables identification. If sending the sample by mail, place the specimen in a vial or crush-proof container.
