Welcome to BugFiles, a database designed to help gardeners identify the insects, spiders, and butterflies in their gardens. BugFiles continues to grow through the collaborative efforts of 2,722 gardeners from around the world. Any registered user may add new insects, images, comments, and ZIP codes.
There are 6,903 bugs listed, with 14,821 images and 2,934 comments in our database.
You may search for entries by common or scientific name, or browse through an entire order of bugs to find what you're looking for. If you would like to add your own photo, description, or other details to a particular insect or bug, you will find the links to do just that under the current information within each entry.
If you know of a bug that is not yet in our database we invite you to add it. (You must be a registered member of Dave's Garden to create new entries, or add information and photos to our database. Membership is free, click here for instructions.)
