A small and boldly colored red and black assassin bug stalks the desert grounds in wait for prey.
Is this also called a “Stink Bug”? One of these hit my arm while riding in an open bucket hotrod. Ugly green stink all over my arm. The desert is full of surprise!
Although they are in the same group of bugs and are closely related, the assassin bug and stink bugs are actually different. Assassin bugs are quite solitary and territorial and will feed on stink bugs, while stink bugs congregate in groups and most are not predators.
Interesting. You are very knowledgable. Thanks for the information update.
