These 2 bugs look like giant stink bugs but I know they’re not because when I killed them I smelled them and they like apples. I know that sounds crazy, I was even amazed by it but that’s what they smelled like to me!  I saw one of these last week but I was unable to get any good pictures of it. Today I got great shots of both of them and  I still have their bodies. Please help me identify what type of bugs they are because it’s driving me nuts. Thank you, I will await your response!  Have a nice day Gail Barnes!!

Dear Gail,
These are Big Legged Bugs in the genus
Acanthocephala, and we are intrigued by your observation that they smell like apples.
