:) I just found this bug
:) crawling up my back. Just cut grass, must have come from the lawn. I
:) never seen one like this..
It looks to be the Longhorned beetle Eburia
quadrigeminata or Ivory marked beetle.
feeds on Non evergreens, can wind up in furniture or
house trim, but probably not in your case.
Thanks! It sure does look like the Ivory Marked beetle.. I hope
it's not eating the trees. Lot's of trees around here are hollow,
although look live and well externally, and break in half during a
heavy gust of wind, and turn up have about 90% if the inside missing..
Thanks for the info!
It looks like a leafhopper, it's about 1/8 to 1/5 inches,wedge-shaped, it's
pale green with white spots. if this is the case i would spray plants that
are near by with sevin, malathinon or methoxychlor, they will destroy
some sort of beetle, possibly even a weevil, but definitley not a leafhopper.
I wouldnt spray a bunch of chemicals as the last poster recommended due to the
fact that you found a single bug on your back.
In response to the last post, i said it looks like a leafhopper, only i had
one that looked like that, and i was told to spray to protect plants, where
there's one, there could be more??? If it's a one off, then i do agree with
the other post for not spraying. Thanks!
