Hello bug man!
I would like to know if these bugs are milkweed bugs or kissing bugs or neither! I spend a lot of time in my garden and saw these guys hanging out. Want to make sure they can’t seriously harm me. Thanks so much for your help.

Dear Nai,
Your image depicts a group of Large Milkweed Bugs,
Oncopeltus fasciatus, both winged adults and wingless nymphs.  They are harmless.

Awesome!! Thanx for responding so quickly. Very kind of u. Take care.
