I have no idea what this is, thought I'd post it on here.  :D This was on the side of my house, I saw it when I was outside eating lunch.  Those are average size bricks, to give a size reference.  I don't really need to no what it is, but it would be interesting... :)

These are not assassin bugs and at more related to milk weed bugs. They feed on plant fluids and seeds.

do you happen to have a pic of its mouth parts? it would be an assassin bug if it has a long snoutish thingy.


Ants I am keeping:

  • Crematogaster colony, queen and 15+ workers coming strong!

This is old and we have established what it is. I have them here and they are not assassin bugs. They feed on oils in seeds and plant fluids.
