Diagnostic Services

Due to limited staffing, at this time, OSU Extension in Summit County does not offer diagnostic site visits to private homeowners unless there is an extenuating circumstance. We always ask our clientele to send us high quality photos of potential pest or disease damage as a first measure to diagnose problems. Images can be sent to Jacqueline Kowalski at As an alternative, clientele can always submit samples in person to our office. It's best to call ahead if you plan to drop off a sample to ensure staff is available to assist.
