Name that bug

Have you ever come across an unfamiliar-looking bug? Here are two sites which may prove helpful in identifying the insect.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Entomology has an "Insect ID" page which covers such categories as ants, beetles, biting insects, indoor/kitchen insects, outdoor insect invaders, and the catch-all division, "odd insects."

And then there's "What's that Bug?" -- more of a homegrown web site where readers submit their own photos of insects for identification by the author. I'm not sure if he's an entomologist, but he appears to know his stuff about a variety of insects, including Latin names. He, too, has categorized submissions by the type of insect.

Unfortunately, there is no trap on the market for wasps, and nothing that can be added to our yellowjacket trap to attract them. We are researching a solution for wasps, however, and hope to introduce something soon!
