As I was going through my nightly ritual of stalking the ever-present Colorado Beetles on my potatoes, I noticed this bug feasting on one.
I believe it’s a type of Assassin Beetle called a Wheel Bug. There are several on my potatoes which may explain why I haven’t seen as many beetles lately.
And although one name sounds ominous and the other benign, this is an example of a good bug in the garden.
Good bugs are my buddies.
Stay hungry my little friends!
p.s. and try some squash bugs for dessert, please!
