Dear Mr. Bugman,
I found these strange bugs in my garden, lots of them in a tree (Alcaparro in spanish). Nobody can tell me what kind of bugs they are, if harmful or poisonous. I live in Bogotá, Colombia. S.A. Will
you please tell me about it?

Though your image is blurry, we are pretty confident these are Giant Mesquite Bugs in the genus Thasus. They are not poisonous and we even received a report that they are edible.
