Can anyone ID this bug?

Post  TCgardening on 4/27/2014, 9:42 am

Yesterday I found a number of these guys on the Stevia plant. Anyone know what they are? Friend or foe?
 Thanks

Even enlarged, I couldn't see:  Does it have fangs like a saber-tooth tiger?  If so, it's an assassin bug.  You might try these websites:

Thanks AtlantaMarie,
That was a fast ID! It is the assassin bug, I could see the fang when I was checking them out yesterday.
Great links too.

Good!  Glad it worked out.  Just don't let it bite you!  From my reading, it can cause humans trouble as well.

There are bad bugs, there are good bugs and then there are very very good bugs!

I agree it looks like an assassin bug. I had some last year but then also had leaf footed stink bugs and thought they were the same. The good guys have white spots.
