To take pictures of a fast-moving insect, slow it down by placing it in the freezer for at least an hour before taking the picture. Upload the picture(s) below. Store the insect in a tupperware-like container until you hear from us. We will either tell you to release the insect or give you instructions about mailing it, delivering it or arranging for pick-up.
