Your letter to the bugman:  I found this bug on my bed. It has a red small head and neck the face reminds me of an ant or mantis. A tan/clear top and a green belly. Six legs. Big hind legs like a grasshopper. No Mantis arms. Also wings! Never seen anything like it! Like a mantis mixed grasshopper. Seems too thin for a grasshopper
