Thanks. It does look like the bug. There is an infestation in my yard. The sides of my house is crawling with them. They are everywhere, its disgusting.

The article doesn't mention a way to control them. I'll try researching more.

Again, thanks so much,
Jane

Looks like the nymph stage of some sort of true bug - not sure which, tho.

In the past I obtained positive ID of larvae by a UF Entemologist - wrote an email w/ attached photo to following address:

Boxelder bugs, young ones I think. Eat the seeds of rain tree. Good bug.......

Wow, how interesting. Yes Golden rain trees next door to me. I get the seedlings sprouting all over my yard, real pesty tree.

Well, I guess its 'live and let live.'

I used to have some wild cotton plants that would be covered with these. Got rid of the plants, no more red bugs.
