Should I assasinate the assasin bugs?

ms_minnamouse(7a)March 7, 2009

They kill pollinating insects, especially bees. There's so many and they're all over the place. Should I drop them into a soapy water bucket and help the bees out? Or should I just let them bee? (Sorry, couldn't help myself!)

I don't usually kill bugs by the way, but japanese beetles and a few others are fair game.

By the way, I just wanted to put it out there that I usually just leave nature alone.

I've seen some nice pics of assassin bugs chomping down on Japanese beetles...
