I saw several of these last year:

Anyone know what this is? Should I stomp it? Or let it live? [dunno]

its hard to get tell exactly with out seeing the specimen. It
looks to be a squash bug or leaf footed bug but for exact ID i would have to see wing veins.

Okay -- if I see them this year, they're gettin' stomped. [Mad]

I'm going to guess that it must be the squash bug, since I planted 6 kinds of squash and two kinds of pumpkins last year and didn't get one single squash or pumpkin...

So, the squash bugs are gonna be squished bugs! [Big Grin]

Thanks Ladies!

I wonder if that is what I call a "stink bug", Weezie?

If that is what Gisela has, she might not want to "squish" it unless she is ready to wash her shoes! [Big Grin] Ewwwwww!

Not to fear -- I have rocks and bricks for squishing. [grin]

Thanks for the warning!
