What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

ID, plant bug?
Hi, Daniel.
You were so helpful with the last mystery bug, I wonder if you could help me with this one. Finding it on my cukes and celery. About 1/4″ long. Any ideas?
Cheers.

Hi Amanda,
I’m afraid we can’t be much more accurate than you have already been. It is a True Bug, and possibly a member of the Plant Bug family Miridae. This is a large family of soft bodied insects, most less than 3/8 inch long. They use their beaklike mouthparts to suck plant juices. They are often injurious to crops.

Good enough. I’ll keep feeding them to the chickens. Thanks again.
