Found some of these on my squash.
CLOSED: Friend or foe?
Looks like a Squash bug to me...........................
If it's on your squash chances are it is a squash bug (or stink bug). Get rid of it! And check for eggs on the leaves and under the leaves. Squish 'em!
There is a look-alike bug similar to a squash bug but has spines on its shoulders (Spined soldier bug)...those are beneficial so don't kill those.
I think this looks like Anasa tristis,
Does anyone see anything else that is similar?
Good advice, Horseshoe. Always look for those eggs. Saves you a lot of trouble later.
BTW, Horseshoe - I met you at the Texas RU in College Station this spring. Anyway, I met your picture! Howdy!
I think it's a California Laurel Borer, Rosalia funebris
I think he belongs in Bug Files, maybe he'll pose for more pictures
A round-necked longhorn beetle. Looks like Rosalia funebris, Family Cerambycidae, in the Cerambycinae subfamily. It is a tree borer - the Banded Alder Borer. Pretty, but not nice.
If you have a new insect that you would like ID'd, it is best to start your own thread. More people will see it that way, and will get a quicker ID.
