assassin bug nymph
July 25, 2009
This long red bug was an unwelcome surprise in my kitchen! I thought you’d get a kick out of the picture. In looking around, I think it is an assassin bug nymph. Is it a milkweed assassin bug? I ask, because I’ve been trying unsuccessfully to grow milkweed!
You are right on both counts. This is an immature Milkweed Assassin Bug and we do find your photos highly amusing.
