Can anyone identify this bug? One shows up every year in early fall.

Hello ~
I just found one of those bugs yesterday and I identified it as a sort of stink bug. Its official name is a western conifer seed bug according to the web.

It's an assassin bug. They're kinda a-holes. I know a man's gotta eat, but these little jerks puncture their prey with their proboscis and inject them with a neuro toxin/solvent and slurp up the victims insides.


They have no mercy, they kill anything in range.

To MOKAIS. Thanks but I think this is different. I checked all different types but this one has a different shape and different colors for example, the antennae are bright red which doesn't show in the pic. Thanks for the input though.

It appears to be a wheel bug, or assassin bug of some species. Possibly Arilus Cristatus

I forgot to add to my bug request that this bug is about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inches long from head to other end. He appears very aggresive as he turned not only his head but entire body to track my every movement!

I think it is a "wheel bug" or known also as an "Assasin Bug". I hope I am correct and I hope this helps you. They can be harmful to humans. Clara
