So since I am dragging you all through this experience with me, I thought I'd show you my latest critter. Let's see what Mystery says about this one.
Hey Mystery... What's this? Should I have smooshed him? Do I need to break out the bazooka?! Help me protect my little nutlets...

Your bug picture is a leaffooted bug, not a good guy so you can smush him/her........ You can tell by the "leaf like" swelling of the hind legs that sort of looks like a leaf. I know of three species of the leaffooted bug genus - Leptoglossus that feed on pecan. The three are Leptoglossus phyllopus, which has a white stripe across the back; L. zonatus which has a zig zag stripe across the back plus two light or orangish areas on the head; and L. oppositus which has three very faint white spots on the back.
Keep up the great work....................Mystery :)
Now to go a smushin'! Thanks Mystery!
