XINXA DE LES MALVES
Sempre n'hi ha hagut davant de casa. Quan comença el fred, sovint les trobaves dins de l'entrada. La #pyrrhocorisapterus, #polldemoro, #coralet, #dimoniet, #xinxaroja o #xinxadelesmalves és un insecte hemípter heteròpter de la família dels #Pyrrhocoridae. Eurasiàtic, és la #xinxa d'Europa més comuna i més expandida: se la troba en els zones temperades d'Europa i en la zona mediterrània, fins a l'Índia. Sovint viuen en grup i són freqüents els individus sense ales. Mengen una mica de tot, però és fàcil veure-les associades a les #malves. De fet es troben en diferents espècies de malvàcies (til·ler, Hibiscus...) i fins i tot mengen insectes morts o ous. És un animal inofensiu, i no desprèn pudors com els seus parents els bernats pudents. Com a curiositat, és fàcil veure-les aparellant-se, per una qüestió de probabilitat: poden estar fins a set dies aparellant-se. I jo que de petit me les mirava pensant que feien dues d'enganxades pel cul, i resulta que estaven de marató.

This giant water bug (Lethocerus sp.) is the largest insect in North America and is also known as a toe-biter for inflicting a rather painful bite. These predators capture prey as large as small snakes and baby turtles with their massive forelimbs, subsequently injecting digestive enzymes and sucking out the resulting slurry. Although they look like cockroaches, they're actually true bugs (Hemiptera). In short, don't walk around freshwater ponds barefoot! #insects #bugs #hemiptera #bugsarecool #predators

I found this adorable little tree hopper yesterday whilst doing a lap around my work building on break.
There's actually two in this picture, the other is hiding under the bark.

This little hopper looks as worried as I do.

Did you hear about the report in Science where researchers in Switzerland sampled honey from many different sites world wide?

Neonicotinoid pesticides were found in 75% of all the samples they collected. Some had five different neonicotinoids present.

The highest percentages were found in North America, and with the USA's new administration, the Environmental Protection Agency seems to be doing all it can to not provide us with the "protection" we need it to.

This is frightening for our children and for our native pollinators.

I hope, as arthropod lovers, you take the time to stay informed on current pesticide issues. It takes us all to fight against the poisons we are being subjected to.

•Look for my photos Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 11:00am pacific time.

•If you would like for me to see a particular comment or photo make sure you add "#karlathompson" - just adding "@karlathompson" may not be enough. My notification feed turns over rather quickly.

As always, if you are curious about the gear I use or my camera settings, feel free to follow the link in my bio and check out this post on my website!

Thanks so much guys!

I caught this cicada (Okanagana sp., I think) back in May. It was a surprise find in my sweeping of long grasses as I was walking to a well to sample for stoneflies. I was surprised to find it out as early as it felt, with how cold it often still was, and thought it heralded the coming arrival of summer. Since then, though, as we near the season's end, I can count on one hand the times I've heard cicadas out at the Nyack (or anywhere I've lived/sampled out here). What a bizarre shift, from Arkansas to Montana, losing the all-consuming buzz of cicadas in exchange for the squeaks of ground squirrels sharing the floodplain with us!

Little green bug drawn to the night light. From family Miridae. Possibly close to Orthotylus sp. Anyone know?

This insect might be a rare sight in your garden, I haven't seen one in a long time. This is a planthopper, most likely in the superfamily Fulgoroidea. Without having taken it through a key, that's about as good of an identification we can make as there are several different insects that have incredibly similar physiological characteristics and are distinguished by minute characteristics in their wing veination. In any case, planthoppers are hemimetabolous, meaning they go through an incomplete metamorphosis, meaning the nymphs resemble adults without wings and the nymphs and adults feed on the same food source. Planthoppers come in all sorts of crazy shapes and styles, but most of those live places other than Southern California. These insects feed on plants, and some are vectors of plant diseases, though very few to none of them are considered pests.

Prosapia bicincta - Two-lined Spittle Bug. These guys resemble leaf-hoppers alot, but actually belong to the sister family: Cercopidae. Spittle bugs produce a mucus-ordure combination to protect themselves from drying out. Once they molt and become adults: they no longer need this protective bubble. Prosapia bicincta mostly feeds on grasses (especially Bermuda grass) and hollies.
