Soldier Bug
  Soldier Bug July 19, 2010
The name stinkbug derives from from their tendency to eject a foul-smelling substance when disturbed; the liquid containing cyanide compounds with a rancid almond scent. This is known as autohaemorrhaging, and is a form of antipredator adaptation. Many stink bugs and shield bugs are considered agricultural pest insects, because they can create large populations; they suck plant juices and damage crop production, and they are resistant to many pesticides. However, some genera of Pentatomidae are Soldier Bug

Tobacco Hornworm/Carolina Sphinx Moth Larvae
  Tobacco Hornworm/Carolina Sphinx Moth Larvae June 26, 2010
Life Cycle: The adult moth lays eggs on the undersides of tomato leaves in late spring. The eggs hatch in six to eight days and the larvae pass through five or six stages, maturing fully in three to four weeks. The fully grown larvae then burrow into the soil to pupate. The pupa may remain in the soil all winter and emerge as a moth the following spring, or, if the weather conditions are suitable, the moth may emerge from the pupa in two to four weeks. The moths emerge from the soil, mate, and t Tobacco Hornworm/Carolina Sphinx Moth Larvae

Convergent Ladybug
  Convergent Ladybug June 13, 2010
Coccinellids are typically predators of Hemiptera such as aphids and scale insects, though conspecific larvae and eggs can also be important resources when alternative prey are scarce. Ladybug larvae can eat about 25 aphids a day; adults can eat over 50. The name "ladybird" originated in the Middle Ages when the insects were known as the "beetle of Our Lady". They were named after The Virgin Mary, who in early religious paintings was often shown wearing a red cloak. The spot Convergent Ladybug

Eastern Tent Caterpillers
  Eastern Tent Caterpillers June 13, 2010
Tent caterpillars secrete silk from a spinneret wherever they go and frequently used pathways soon bear conspicuous silk trails. As the caterpillars move about the tree, they largely confine their movements to these trails. Curiously, it is not the silk that they follow but a trail pheromone secreted from the posterior tip of their abdomen. Caterpillars deposit exploratory trails by dragging the tip of their abdomen as they move over the tree in search of food. Caterpillars that find food and fe Eastern Tent Caterpillers
