Can not Figure out bug

Post  mschaef on 6/17/2013, 11:41 pm

I have seen three of these guys in the my garden and not sure what it is or if I should squish it or not. I know that I have seen a picture of them somewhere just cant remember. I did look through all the old pest topic...didn't find it...and tried google. Can't seem to find them anywhere except in the garden please help, Thanks!

The bug in on a red solo cup that I use to water with. Sorry that its blurry but he/ she is really little.

Check bugguide.net in the beetle section. Hard to tell but it looks like a beetle from here, but the image is so blurry, it could be a bug.. Another thing is try your county extension service, they may be able to help.
