I have two excellent books that I use to identify insects within our
institution. The first is called

    George C. McGavin
    Insects Spiders and other Terrestrial Arthropods
    Published by Dorling Kindersley
    ISBN 0-7894-5337-1
    $18.95 USD

The second is specifically relevant to your geographical region

    Hugh Philip and Ernest Mengersen.
    Insect Pests of the Prairies.
    Published by the University of Alberta
    ISBN 0-88864-870-7
    Approximately  $21CDN

While neither are specific to museums, they have been a great help
to me. The pictures in both books are excellent and all in full
colour. Some have pictures of the pest in all of its life stages. It
also gives its habitats, what it eats, the damage it causes and
control suggestions. Good luck,
