Another odd Florida insect is the Giant Waterbug. This member of the beetle family is not as common as the pesky fire ant, but it is unpleasant on a much larger scale as far as size is concerned. The Giant Waterbug grows from 1.5 to four inches in length, is usually found in ponds or murky water, and can inflict a nasty bite on the unsuspecting wader. In fact, their common name is "toe biter"!

    The Insect ID Lab strives to provide a species-level identification of the submitted insects. However, depending on the sample, only a genus, family, or order level identification may be possible. Control recommendations are provided upon request. Other arthropods besides insects are also accepted, including mites, ticks, spiders, and millipedes. The University of Florida Insect ID Lab provides this service primarily for Florida residents. If you are not a Florida resident and would like to send a sample, contact the lab prior to sending a specimen. In the event that the lab is willing to receive your sample, only dead arthropod specimens should be sent to the lab from out-of-state.
