I found this little bugger in the yard the other day. I’ve never seen this kind of critter in my yard before and have a feeling he may be the little ass that is chewing on my plants. If it is helpful, he has green ’bug juice’… I know cause I squished the little shit after he posed for pictures to send you. Thanks in advance for your help in helping me identify this little guy (girl?)

Dear ConnieSue,
Thank you for sparing us the photo of the Unnecessary Carnage.  This is a beneficial, predatory Assassin Bug in the genus
Zelus.

Thank you so much Daniel!  Now I fee bad about squishing this beneficial little guy…  will have to apologize to his family.

At least you will know for the future.
