    Description

    The behavior of insects and mites can be observed most easily in their natural environments. However, many
    species, especially the smaller ones, must be collected and properly preserved before they can be identified. Because correct identification seldom is easy, it is important that specimens be preserved in the best condition possible. The identification of a particular insect or mite usually requires examination of minute details of its anatomy with the aid of a hand lens or microscope. Some specimens may require dissection or even study with the electron microscope. If these details on a specimen are concealed, missing, or destroyed because of improper handling or preservation, identification is made difficult or impossible, and information about the species to which it belongs cannot be made available. Therefore, adequate preservation and proper labeling of specimens are essential to their identification.
