Hey bugman!
I spotted a tiny assassin bug carrying a house fly around in our yard yesterday and wanted to share. Hope y’all are having a wonderful weekend!

    I found this same looking “Immature Assassin Bug” in my yard yesterday!!! I Live on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii!!! 8-17-2017!
    I have never noticed any before, I thought it was a “Baby Praying-
    Manis”??? Spell check on Man ’tis?!? My Free-Rarge Chicken, Angel is
    Her Name. Ate it up as soon as I was done looking at it! Uups,💩!!!
    Is it normal for them to be in Hawaii??? Mahalo for any answers, Diana
