Note: We realize that insects and spiders are wildlife, too. However, questions and information about these animals are not available through us. Rather, please contact the Entomology Extension folks at or call 515-294-1101. Remember: if it has 6 legs or more, contact Entomology Extension! Fewer legs than 6, contact Wildlife Extension.
