I found this little guy in Santa Monica, he was on some large mesh orange netting surrounding some trees, to protect them I think. This guy is very small only about 1/4″ long, with 6 legs. I have no idea what he is or could be, can you tell me please.
Thank you,

Dear Lauri,
This is an immature, beneficial, predatory Assassin Bug nymph that might bite if carelessly handled.
