Can you Identify this bug

Post  ralitaco on 5/28/2015, 8:26 am

Sorry for the poor quality of the picture, the litter bugger kept running from the camera.
Can anyone identify this bug? Is it friend of foe?

Rather difficult to tell from the photo. What does the back look like?

Ok. I found a link with something with longlegs and thin antenna like that. Does your bug look like any of these? if so, its a damsel bug which is a predator and are North American as far as I can tell.

Yup, your right, poor quality photo in that I cannot see the bug beyond that it is a bug. It may be a nymph. Please try to post a better photo.

In the meantime try bugguide.net.

That looks similar to one I i.d. last year.  It was a good guy...  If you can see his face, does it look like he has fangs?

If so, it's probly an assassin bug.

Thanks for the suggestions.
If I see it again, I will try to get a better picture.
Unfortunately, I didnt have my ladder out and it was playing coy with the camera.
Thanks again.
