smiley face bug
Can you tell me what it is? I call it the smiley bug, but I’d like to know the real name. It’s about the size of a lady bug, maybe a little bigger. Found in Dallas, Georgia.
We will contact Eric Eaton to see if he knows what species this unique Stink Bug is. Here is Eric’s response: “The unknown stink bug is the Anchor Stink Bug, Stiretrus anchorago,” which comes in several color schemes, including deep blue and red. This is a “good” species, in that it is predatory, often feeding on webworms in fact. Hope this helps. Eric”
