I found this critter in my pine, with 4 friends. And I killed them all.
Anyone a clue what it is?
My best guess is a beetle larva. Maybe coccinellid or chrysomelid–ladybug or leaf beetle?
A true bug / stink bug nymph most of them feed on plants so killing is appropriate.
I put a chemical on it, I found some more smaller ones.
Thanks for thinking with me.
On second look, I agree that it’s probably a true bug nymph. I just have beetles on the brain. Flashbacks to trying to count leg segments on beetles back in a college entomology class…
