Dear Terri,
We will deal with the Assassin Bug in a later posting.  Your long nosed Leafhopper in the family Dictyopharidae is a Partridge Bug,
Scolops sulcipes, a species we identified on BugGuide where it states:  “host: Convolvulus (bindweed, Convolvulaceae).”

Location: Courtice Arena, Ontario, Canada
