Assassin Bugs – Beneficial Predator

Less than 1% of all insects are considered as harmful insects.  This beneficial insect was found crawling through the cilantro plant this morning.  Perhaps the flowers that attract other insects may have brought this bug here to find a meal. Learn to identify both the “good guys” and the “bad guys” in the garden so you will know if a control is needed.  For more about assassin bugs in the Reduviidae family see: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/topic_family_reduviidae
