Green 6-legged Insect (Conehead katydid nymph)
by John W Beene
(El Dorado, Arkansas, USA)
This insect was found inside the kitchen windowsill in in my home in El Dorado, Arkansas, USA. It is green with a whitish underside, and has 6 legs and 2 attenas. The body is appx 5/8 to 9/16 inch long. The back legs are about twice as long as the other 4 legs. At the end of the tail there appears to be a pincer. It does not have wings. The photo was taken of it's underside as it was clinging with its feet to the glass jar I have it in. All the feet have the capability to adhere to the glass and move independently.
Bright Green Caterpillar in my top soil (Cutworm)
This bright green caterpillar, between 1-2 inches in length, is nesting or hanging out in my top soil on my flower farm. I was weeding a bed and started to uncover multiple caterpillars. As I said, they are bright green and have ridges of dots down their back. I farm in Petaluma, CA and have not seen these in previous seasons. I have been farming on this property for 4 seasons. Thank yoU!!!!
greenish-black or brownish-black insect,(June beetles
I found two dead bugs in my garage today (5/27). The curved back is greenish-black or brownish-black. The underside is brown. The six legs are a glossy russet brown and the front part of the underside (=the portion nearest the head) is lighter, almost beige in color.
The garage is dusty and sooty. There are some old things (furniture, cardboard boxes, clothing) stored there, as well as the car and the trash bin. Just outside the garage is the driveway/garden/patio area.
Our homeowners' association handles the landscaping. One week ago, there was a guy outside spraying the driveway/patio area for ants. (We have never had ants in the house. I have noticed anthills on the driveway, but didn't think it was a concern.) I mention this in case the antspray might have driven these bugs into the garage.
Also, we've had a lot of rain recently.
I've had the house for 20 years. I've never seen these bugs before. I only found the two. The only other bugs I've ever seen in the garage have been box elder bugs.
Thanks! I don't want them in the house. :)

Small, Green, Long Hind Legs (Katydid nymph)
(Fort Wayne, IN)
Found crawling around in the kitchen - about 1 inch long. The caudal-most pair of legs are seemingly disproportionately long - looks like they allow this insect to jump quite a ways. Did not see any wings. Perhaps a Katydid Nymph?

I found it in the central florida woods, south east of orlando
Quarter sized green bug. (Green stink bug)
What am I and am I harmful to plants?
I found this quarter sized bug crawling on my plant. It didn't seem to be harmful but I have some leaves that are dying. Just wondering if this little guy could be the reason. He flew away before I could catch him but I did get a good picture first!
This green bug is the size of a mosquito. (Assassin bug nymph)
Lime green and size of a mosquito. I live in Ohio and have had 3 in my house in 24 hours???
Green Bug With Leaf-Like Wings (Greater angle-wing katydid)
(Fort Collins, CO, USA)
green leaf-winged insect
My boys found this insect crawling on the patio in Fort Collins, Colorado in August. It has a short, fat green body with a couple of points at the rear, and its wings look like green leaves. Its wings were curled in an odd way as if it might have recently emerged from a cocoon. Thanks for helping to figure it out.
