A Bug of Several Colors

This bug is eating my basil! What will I do for my pizza?

  1. This isn't a beetle, although it is often mistaken for one. It's a stinkbug nymph. As a "true bug", (order hemiptera) it has sucking mouthparts, so it won't actually be eating the basil leaves, only sucking the sap from the stems.
