Can anyone ID this bug?
I found it in my garden yesterday. It's body is firm, and it wiggles back and forth. Its about 2 1/2 in long!
CLOSED: weird bug
I haven't seen one of these since I was a kid! I don't know exactly what it is, but it's the pupal stage of something - I think it may be a moth. As far as I know, they aren't harmful to anything so I wouldn't get too worked up over it.
Thank you very much for the info! This bug wont make it to the moth stage. Out of all the years of growing a garden I have never seen one of these before. I try and squish all the horn worms I find.
Now that I know it is a horn worm... I retract my earlier comment about not getting worked up.
