Ambush bugs can vary slightly in color. Some are golden yellow and brown, while others are more green. Males are physically smaller than females and can often be seen riding on their mates back (see the fourth photo in the gallery). Females will lay bunches of fertilized eggs on plant stems and cover them in a frothy coating, which may offer protection from desiccation and predation.
Look for Ambush Bugs in yellow flowers, like Black-Eyed Susans and sunflowers. White daisies and colorful asters are also popular blossoms for this insect. They don't mind urban gardens, suburban backyards or meadows; any area with flowers and insects is a good place to search for Ambush Bugs.
