Say Hello To My Little Friend

"Mommy, there's a spider on Paige's bed!!!!!" Actually, no, it was not a spider, it was this little guy - the milkweed assassin bug. Despite its violent sounding name the milkweed assassin bug is actually pretty good to have around the house. They eat aphids, armyworms, stinkbugs, houseflies, etc. I am especially happy to see him since it seems we will have another infestation of stink bugs again this year. Unfortunately, he had to go because their bites are extremely painful to humans and he really had no place in Paige's bed.
