Helpful tips to get the most out of our services:

For insect ID, it is helpful if you don't crush the bug. You can capture the bug and place it in a small jar with rubbing alcohol or clear hand sanitizer. This preserves the color, and body of the insect.

For plant ID or plant  disease ID, if you can bring a substantial sample with several leaves or flowers that gives the mater gardeners more to work with. If you bringing in a disease sample, if you could bring a sample of the infected plant and a healthy sample that would be super helpful.
