Lacewing Larva

Dear Logan,
This is a Lacewing Larva, and Lacewings are considered beneficial insects that eat many plant eating insects, including Aphids.  Lacewing Larvas are sometimes called Aphid Wolves.  We get a fair share of inquiries about Aphid Wolves biting humans, and the reaction to the bite varies with the individual.  We don’t understand your location.  AT is not the abbreviation of any state in the USA.  Are you in Arkansas?

Location: Hatfield, Arkansas
