What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Milkweed Bug
Hi Bug Man….
a search on your webpage suggests that these are Small Milkweed bugs. Is the one in the upper left hand corner also a small Milkweed bug (perhaps a WEE small milkweed bug)? Or is it another species altogether? The bugs were found, appropriately, on a swamp milkweed pod.
Thanks,
Jill

Hi Jill,
Great photo. These are all Small Milkweed Bugs, Lygaeus kalmii. The smallest is an immature nymph that will grow wings at the final molt.
