Let’s take a break from bumblebees – as amazing as they are – and appreciate other insects.
.
If you ever feel pedantic, you can correct people who refer to all insects or creepy crawlies as ‘bugs’, because ‘true’ bugs only include those in the insect order of Hemiptera, such as shield bugs, cicadas, aphids, etc.
.
Apart from the obvious buzz of the pollinators in your garden, you might have noticed insects about ¾ inches long on your flowers that look a bit like the insect in the photo. I’m going to introduce you to a new group of insects – shield bugs (also known as stink bugs).
.
They’re called shield bugs as they have a shield-like triangular ‘scutellum’, which is the hardened extension of the thorax over the abdomen.
.
They’re also infamously known as stink bugs because they release a pungent liquid from special glands near their hind legs which smells awful (trust me on this, they also stain your hands sometimes) in order to fend off any potential predators.
.
Shield bugs often show parental care (unlike most of the other insects, which ditch their child as soon as possible) – some species would even sit on the eggs until they hatch in order to protect them from predators!
.
The insect in the photo above is the Forest Shield bug, also known as the Red-Legged Shieldbug. Shoutout to @sam_bakhshalian for finding it.

Adoring God's creation all day with one of my favorite creations. #bettertogether #meanttobe #tobecontinued #zooday #stinkbug

Possibly Poecilometis sp nymph.
Some stink bug species have switched from feeding on plant juices to feeding on "insect juices" including caterpillars.

Bean plants damaged by stink bug feeding and egg laying emit an odour attractive to parasitoid wasps, which then attack the bugs. (Copy & paste)  #stinkbug #shieldbug #macroworld #macrocreatures #macroinsects #macrobug

花壇で2組のカメムシが至近距離で交尾してました。既に産み付けられた卵も。産卵にもってこいの場所なんですね。Two stink bug couple in our garden.

I really hate to call this gorgeous thing 'stink bug,' but I understand I must.

Brown Marmorated Stink Bug nymph trying to keep me from stealing its dinner. I've never had as bad a #stinkbug infestation in my #garden as I've had this year. I'm open to suggestions that do not include pesticides... #texas #backyard #tomatoes #gardenpests #eatingmoretomatoesthanme
