Dear Bugman –
This morning, I found this little scary bug on my neck while making the kids breakfast. Can you tell me what it is?
It is about the size of my pinky nail in length but skinnier.

Ladybug Larva

Dear Wimpy Dad,
We field so many identification requests for this creature and people are generally amazed to learn that this is the larval form of the familiar Lady Beetle or Ladybug.
