What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

I have been finding these bugs on my Desert Willow tree and don’t know if they are something I should try to get rid of, or fear! What are they?
Thanks,
Lorri

Hi Lorri,
These are Leaf-Footed Bugs or Coreid Bugs in the genus Leptoglossus. You did not provide us with a location, so we are leery of giving a species identification. They suck plant juices.

  1. The upper one is probably Acanthocephala declivis, the lower one Leptoglossus zonatus.
