Plant Bug (Mirid)

Plant Bug (Mirid) - Polymerus sp.

We may often call all insects "bugs", but this one really is a true bug, a plant bug. It has a probe that it inserts into plants and sucks out the juices. While that's not particularly good for the plant, it's seldom a real problem unless you get a heavy infestation.
