Your letter to the bugman: Hi- stumbled across your site and thought of this bug I saw years ago-
I believe it was at the brooklyn Navy Yard, spring or summer
Is it rare? I’ve always kind of liked insects, and have never seen anything like this
How you want your letter signed: IcyRazer
The Large Milkweed Bug is not considered rare.
Thanks for the quick response…
I was hoping it was some exotic bug never before seen in NY, but great to know about the Large Milkweed Bug… it was quite beautiful, and I don’t recall ever seeing one before.
