orange and black bug
April 27, 2010
It is spring and we went to a park were we found this orange and black bug. There were two of them that we found on a hill. We got close to them and they did not fly off, so I believe they don’t fly.
Because they hibernate as adults, adult Large Milkweed Bugs, Oncopeltus fasciatus, like the individual in your photograph, are seen in the spring as they begin producing a new generation.
