Milkweed Assassin Bug nymph

Dear thatlostdog,
This is a Milkweed Assassin Bug nymph, a beneficial predator that will help control the populations of plant eating insects in the yard and garden.

  1. Hi we live in England and we have just found a bug in our garden that we have never come across before can you help us with its name? Its small and black and if it gets scared all its tiny legs go under his body like the same way a tortoise does when he hides in his shell?
