orange body brown winged bug (Soldier beetle)
(Mountain View, CA)
I live in Mountain View, CA, and found a lot of these bugs in our back yard for the first time this year. We have a Japanese Maple that has just started sprouting leaves and we found an infestation of what we thought were aphids, but know I'm wondering if it's the larvae of this bug.
Thank you for your help!

Orange bug mosaic thoracic
We found these two bugs on a hosta plant. They have a mosaic design belting the exposed part of the body. The belt is white and black. The black being a border for white "spots" - one sequence of "spots" depicts a butterfly design. I wish I had had my 5D camera instead of only the NexusOne cell.
bright orange with black spots, (Milkweed Bugs)
Never seen these before. They are all over the butterfly weed seed pods but sure aren't butterflies! Also seem to like the pink zinnias nearby.
Tiny orange bug (American spider beetle)
What the heck is this????
I keep finding these tiny dark orange bugs in my daughters bed and only my daughters bed. I don't think they are bed bugs. At first I thought they were spiders but they are not.
The are very small, the body a little bigger than a pencil tip.
The body is a hard shiney shell.

Saw this bug on a hibiscus plant in late August in mid-western Maryland. The body was kind of bulbous and thorny. He liked having his picture taken. Can you identify him?
Orange Ladybug look alike (Squash beetle)

This bug has caused damage to my zucchini year after year, thinking it was a ladybug I was to late in treating it--This year I've spotted a few already, Can I get rid of this bug without a heavy pesticide, Thuricide is only good for moth type worms ?

We were harvesting hot peppers yesterday (9/6/2010) and found one pepper completely covered in these bright orange bugs with black legs. They started to scatter after we disturbed the branch, so we quickly dumped them into this small cup of water. What should we do next time we see these? Thanks.

Orange and long legs ( Milkweed assassin bug)
by Daria Ratliff
This insect has been on our lime tree for 3 months and we sprayed some insect killer bought in a local store for general insects. We had some results for a little while but they're slowly coming back. You can see the insect in the picture very well. Also, the leaves have black spots that look horrible. I hope this insect is a good one and we don't need to exterminate it. Thanks a lot!
orange pods (Lady Beetle Pupa)
(San Diego CA)
There are these orange podlike things that have attached themselves to the outside of my garden containers (half wine barrels). I hope they are some sort of pre-ladybug beings. Here is a picture.
Orange body, 6 black legs and 2 long antennam(Milkweed assassin bug)
This insect has a body type of an ant but doesnt fit any other catagories. Legs and antenna are long in relation to the body. There also , after enlarging the picture, appears to have undeveloped wing and very small white dots on the tail. Pretty active and relatively fast. They are prodominantly on my Passion vines but also may be on the other plants and flowers in the yard. The pictures I am sending will better discribe it than me. I live in Bradenton Fl. 50 mi. south of Tampa.
