Specimens suspected of being bed bugs should be collected into small break-resistant containers (such as a plastic pill bottle or a zipper-lock plastic bag. They may also be secured to a sheet of white paper using clear packaging tape. You may kill bed bugs by placing them into your freezer for an hour or more. You can then use your digital camera to capture an image and upload that image to the IdentifyUS website for us to evaluate. If you prefer, you may send us the actual specimens along with a Specimen Evaluation Form. Even if you are uploading digital images, you should still include the Specimen Evaluation Form to make sure we have complete information.
