This little guy decided to try to bathe with my 2 year old and I havent been able to figure out what it is. Any help would be appreciated . It has white and black stripped antenna as well as a red abdomen on top lined with black and white stripes. The underside of the abdomen is simple black and white stripes. A friend refered me to your site as the “go to place”.

Hi Jackie,
This is some species of Leaf Footed Bug or Big Legged Bug in the family Coreidae.  We are not certain of the exact species.  Perhaps a reader will provide the answer, or perhaps we will have more luck in the future.
