Hello WTB! It’s nice and hot here in Texas and the bugs are really starting to invite themselves into the house. I’m thinking that this tiny fellow is from the stinkbug family, but I’ve never seen one with hairy legs like that. Can stinkbugs have hairy legs or is this actually a kind of roach? Thanks for any help!
Though this is not a Stink Bug it is a related True Bug in the suborder Heteroptera. This is a Burrowing Bug in the family Cydnidae based on some images posted to BugGuide. We are very excited to be creating a new subcategory for Digger Bugs thanks to your photograph. We will also search our archives to see if there are any other Burrowing Bugs buried there.
