What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Red Headed Bush Cricket ??
June 30, 2010
I found this little pair today. they were crawling around on my potted strawberry plants out front. I did not see any really great photo’s on the site, so thought I would send you a few.
Very small, wingless and hairy, they were a bit less than 1/4 of in inch long. Several of them on the plant, but they were too shy, and I’m not willing to kill one to shoot it. Patience and persistence, a few crossed words, and 2 of them finally allowed me to capture their image.
Hope you like them.

Hi Rick,
Yesterday evening we posted a letter with a photo of a Red Headed Bush Cricket, bug technical difficulties have not allowed the image to show.  We are also posting your photos.  We prefer the common name Handsome Trig for the Red Headed Bush Cricket,
Phyllopalpus pulchellus.

AKA: Red Headed Bush Cricket
