22 July 2007 - Hey! I learned something on this one. I thought this was a Stink Bug, BUT it is not. This is a Spined Soldier Bug. There is a BIG difference. The Stink Bugs (there are 2 kinds, Brown & Green) are harmful to the plant. This one, the Spined Soldier Bug, is a 'good' bug for us. It feeds on bad bugs and aphids that harm the plants. Yes! It's good to know the difference.
