My son found this bug on the carpet. He picked it up then dropped it on his leg and he said it bit him. We live in buckeye, AZ.
Assassin Bugs in the genus Zelus will bite readily if carelessly handled, and the bite is reported to be quite painful, but it is not considered dangerous to humans. This is a beneficial predator.
