Though its manner of dispatching bugs for meals seems brutal, Leafhopper Assassin Bugs can help in gardens infested with pest bugs, but they don't really discriminate between helpful and harmful plant bugs. Adults and nymphs may be seen near each other, but they look nothing alike. Nymphs are small, spiky and white with orange on the dorsal (back) side. Adults are slender and long with brown bodies, orange patches on the elytra (wing covering) and green legs. Both are good at what they do: eat.
