|Comment||Dr. Eaton was very honest with his answer and didn't try to give an answer just to satisfy me. After spending so much money on exterminators, who actually did very little to solve my problem, it was refreshing to have someone give a direct answer. It is difficult to answer this problem without seeing the bug, but he did direct me to someone who could possibly give me an answer. Thank you Dr. Eaton. Even if you aren't a doctor you were very professional. Best Regards, Jean|

I answer insect and spider identification questions ONLY. Attach images if possible. No "what bit me?", "what do I feed this bug in captivity?", or science fair project questions please. NO TECHNICAL QUESTIONS ABOUT INSECT PHYSIOLOGY.
