Anyone know this bug?

Post  elliephant on 4/26/2013, 2:00 pm

Guessing they are in the nymph stage by the way they are all clustering together.

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau

It's really hard to tell from that picture, but perhaps it's this?

I THINK it's a bug, not a beetle. I'm working on it Elli. Let us know if you find out anything.

Man you got some strange lookin' creatures down there.

From a bug forum:

Florida Predatory Stink Bug nymphs
by: Moni

Thom
You have Fl predatory stink bugs or also called Halloween bugs. Thanks for the great description and all the info!
They are "good" bugs as they feed on other insect pests like caterpillars, leaf beetles and planthoppers. Both nymphs and adults feed on insects.
They are just found throughout all SE US.
They are known for their metallic blue/green thorax with red abdomens. The adults look similar.
The nymphs are known to congregate together...sometimes this is to attack large insect prey together. Otherwise they sometimes are found together at night.
