To help with identification and diagnosis, plant and insect specimens can be brought to the Northampton County Extension office in Nazareth, PA or the Lehigh County Extension office in Allentown, PA. Select fresh plant samples with intact parts including flowers, if present. For diagnosis, bring a live sample that shows both healthy and unhealthy growth. Enclose live insect specimens and infested plants in an airtight container. If you cannot keep the insect alive, place it in a jar with alcohol or freeze it for several days to preserve the specimen. Digital photos for plant or insect identification can also be e-mailed to the office.
