this insect i found walking on a bush with leaves in florida. it is large and narrow with a light yellow body and black spots and long black legs and antennas also appeared to have wings that were tucked in. if you could tell me what this is i would appreciate it. thank you
Your bug is a milkweed assassin bug because it looks like another bug called the milkweed bug.
It can also be called the long-legged assassin bug.
It is a generalist predator feeding on a wide range of soft bodied insects in the garden…such as flies, mosquitoes, cucumber beetles and caterpillars. This is a good bug 🙂
It is found all across southern North America. They overwinter as adults.
