    assassin bugs dont eat plants. they eat bugs.

    in fact, there are a few carnivorous plants that share a symbiotic relationship with assassin bugs. Drosera and roridula are two such genre.

    If there are any left over keep them. They're awesome little bugs. They do hurt a lot when they bite, I know from experience.

    That was going to be my id also. Assassin bug nymphs. Used to get a lot of them when I lived in Houston. One of the cooler predatory bugs imo, almost as cool as mantids...almost.

    Wow! That's pretty awesome if those are assassin bugs! I thought those only lived on Roridula and Drosera.
