ID to last week’s bug

–by Frannie Miller

Assassin bug nymph – This nymph uses it piercing sucking mouthparts to inject paralyzing and pre-digestive enzymes into its prey. These nymphs look nothing like the adult wheel bug, which they will become. Both the adult and nymph can inflict a painful bite if handled.
