Red insect building amber cells
May 9, 2010
Can you please identify these red insects that are building these amber cells? They’re on my window. They are slow moving; it was very hard to tell if they were alive or not. The body is 3 mm in length x 1mm wide. The amber cells are about 1 mm x 1mm.

Leaf Footed Bugs Hatching

Dear Helen,
These are hatchling Leaf Footed Bugs in the family Coreidae.  We are uncertain of the species, but we matched them to a photograph posted to BugGuide.
