1) More than anything, OBSERVE! Observe behaviours, movement, colors - this will help you identify an insect.
2) If it looks dangerous, assume that it is! General Rule-of-Thumb is to not directly handle insects; leave that to the experts.
3) Leave nature EXACTLY as you found it. Do not remove insects from their natural habitats for display at home and do not disturb natural settings!
4) Above all else, enjoy the intricate and interesting world of insects. Remember, we need them more than they need us!
