This study determines the number of families of Hemiptera found in the state and has a key for their classification. The characteristics and general distributions of each family are given, along with specific examples of the most common and economically important bugs. Important references are given for each family of work done to date. It was found that there have been twenty-eight families of Hemiptera collected in Utah, some of which are well represented in numbers of genera, species, and individuals, while others are represented by a single species and collected in only one or two places in the state.
