What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

one for your eastern collection
Hi from Nova Scotia, Canada. Love the site and very informative for my photography. Shot this guy up in tree eating what appears to be a swallowtail caterpillar. Good to see other people who like the insects in their areas..

Hi Chris,
The identification of immature specimens is often very difficult. We checked with Eric Eaton who echoed that: “I dont know. Good luck finding anyone who can ID nymphs! That could either be a pentatomid or an above-ground burrower bug in the genus Sehirus. Best I can do. ” Some species in the Family Pentatomidae, the Stink Bugs or Shield Bugs, are predatory. Appears you have one of those.
