close up of bess beetle....they all look exact same....nest is what i think are milkweed assassins....they were cool til i found out that they were plastic climbers, then even worse found out they wanna flap their wings at top of plastic only got 3 of them, and tried to get a close up of one, but they were super fast and getting frisky....next is some egg cases i found, found about 20-30, i know the one on left is a roach ooth, but others i aint sure....found em all under rocks and rotting wood...one second from right looks like moth, got alot of em....these are 2 different kinds of roaches i found down there....the one looks like blatta latteralis and the other i dunno, but would those be wild latteralis? found a bunch of each and some nymphs that look just like latteralis too....these guys look like mealworms, little one is fat and about 1 inch, big one is fat and about 3 inches and vicious.....there was also one in there that looked like a common mealworm, but musta got eatin....the big one though....when you touch him, its like touching a vietnamese centipede....i dunno.....look for north carolina 3

Hi catfishrod69!

I don't know about the Roaches... :?

The Bess Beetle I know... :)

The Mealworms.... I can't even haphazard a guess for them.... :8o

However.... the Assassin bugs look like the Triatoma sanguisuga that Galapoheros identified for me. "Blood-sucking Conenose". I'm not 100% positive, but search for the Triatome sp to see if you can find yours. Here in Florida many call these Stinkbugs. (Don't know why...) :confused:

BTW, awesome pics! I will look your other threads and see what you have. :D

Those don't look like Triatoma sanguisuga, I think they are some other kind of bug but I don't know what...:? Maybe look up Melanolestes picipes and see what you think.
