Camera Critters - Stink Bug


I think this is a stink bug, but it seemed really big. Not sure how big those bugs get.

Yuck! I would have been screaming for hubby or son to come take care of that thing. :P You're very brave to get the photo.

Sometimes I bring those in on blackberries and they will stick thru a couple washings. They aren't very big and they don't taste good either!

I don't think that's a stink bug. Perhaps a relative, though. He sure is ugly.

I prefer the more dignified "shield" bug as a name for this critter. ;) At least I think I read somewhere stink bugs are also known as shield bugs because of their shield-like shape.

It looks pretty nasty to me and if it is a stink bug then I surely don't want to squish it to find out.Thanks for dropping by.

Saw you photo today. Sorry to say it is not a stink or shield bug, but a type of assassin bug. It is considered to be a beneficial insect because it feeds on pest insects. No need to worry about it or to spray.

Check my blog at http://blog.growingwithscience.com/?p=21 for a look at a young assassin bug (nymph) that is found in Arizona.
