This is an immature Masked Hunter, a species of predatory Assassin Bug. The exoskeleton of a newly molted immature Masked Hunter is sticky, and it attracts debris that helps to camouflage the insect, and helps explain the common name. Masked Hunters might bite if carelessly handled, but they will also help to keep unwanted creatures from proliferating.
