Suggestions on Searching with Common Names

  • try searching for a more general form of the insect, for example, bed bug can be found under bugs and Tsetse can be found under flies
  • try searching by a different name for the same insect, for example, waterbugs are found under cockroaches and white ants are found under termites
  • try searching by part of the name, for example, if you are interested in plantlice and look under lice, there is a link taking you to aphids, which is another name for plantlice
