BugGuide.Net is a great bug reference website where naturalists spend time cataloging and identifying bug of the United States and Canada. It's a free resource for people looking for information or identification and an invaluable tool for gardeners who want to know what bugs are visiting their garden.
The design is nice and simple and the website is easy to navigate. You can click on the the illustration of a particular bug on the left hand side to see information about that bug.
If you've ever wondered "what's this bug?" or "what kind of bug?"after encountering a creepy crawly in your garden check out this site. They allow you to upload pictures of a particular bug to get an ID and they also have a small forum you might like if you're a naturalist or a bug geek.
I think this site is great and I really appreciate that these people give of their time and knowledge and because of that I have to give BugGuide.Net 5 out of 5 stars.
