    One of the Broad-headed Bugs (Alydidae) subfamily Alydinae maybe. Probably in the nymph stage still.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    They were assassin bugs. Very beneficial insects.

    sad....an animal being exterminated because of its name...maybe we should do the same to killer whales. lol.

    but luckily, assassin bugs arent under high pressure like orcas. like many have already said, most assassin bugs are beneficial insects, which eat pests that could damage your plants...that being said, i wouldnt let them bite you, as they carry a very painful bite....
