    What Bug is This?

    I know this isn't a bug forum, but I figure you guys probably know your fair share about bugs.

    I just came in from mowing, and felt this on my shoulder. I was going to kill it or throw it outside, but I decided to take its picture before trying to feed it to a pitcher. It flew away once outside, though.

    It is a weevil, and considering weEVILs, I would kill that thing before it has a chance to bore into the rhizomes of your plants...

    Ugh, there are to many people with this way of thinking. My brothers friend killed a giant silk moth just because. Makes me angry sometimes.

    Most insects aren't a problem. Killing every insect you don't know is like people who kill every plant they don't know because it might be a weed. If a Sarracenia popped up in their yard, the Roundup would come out for sure.
