    I'm planning on going on a collecting trip to Arizona in May (easiest time for me to go). Will be staying in Phoenix and Tucson for a couple days each so I'll be traveling from those places. Anybody know what the insect activity is like for that time?

    Around the Tucson area you should be able to find nymphs of the Giant Mesquite Bug, *Thasus neocalifornicus* - just look in the mesquite trees. Lots of cool arachnids out and about, too - I've found solifugids, assorted scorpions, amblypygids, and tarantulas while out hiking at night.
