Scentless Plant Bug (Niesthrea louisianica)
Found these little buggers all over my Indian Mallow. Upon closer inspection, I found adults mating (scroll through), newborns, and nymphs, all dining on the blossoms which were in various stages of going to seed. It turns out they feed on both the seeds and the blossoms, and if you look at the final image you’ll see the proboscis of a nymph diving straight in to a relatively new bud. So, I did a little homework and here’s what I found out at the site “Dave’s Bugs”: “The scentless plant bug (Niesthrea louisianica) is native from Arizona to Florida north to New York and West to Iowa in the Mississippi Valley. Nymphs and adults feed on seeds of malvaceous plants. Host plants include rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus), hibiscus, spurred anoda (Anoda cristata)and abutilon species. I found it feeding on a rock rosemallow (Pavonia lasiopetala) plant seeds. It feeds on flower buds, spent flowers and seeds. Masses of eggs are laid and are deposited on the undersides of leaves. Many times there are more than one generation per year. “Usually they are not damaging enough nor common enough to be considered a real ornamental plant pest due to the fact that they usually do not cause noticeable damage. If Niesthrea louisianica becomes abundant enough to cause concern, a pesticide can be applied for control on flower buds, spent blooms and undersides of leaves (if eggs are noticed). Please avoid spraying open blooms to prevent killing bees. If practical, hand removal is also effective.” ——————————— #bugs#wildyardsproject#beastsinmyyard#californianativeplants#plantnativeplants#yourpropertyishabitat#pests#gardenpests#beneficialinsects#entomology
Fall is the time most homeowners notice larger numbers of stink bugs indoors. This is because stink bugs are unable to withstand the cold winter. As October approaches, hordes of stink bugs make their way inside via windows, doors, chimneys and other cracks. Once they send out the invitation for other stink bugs to join them, you could ultimately have hundreds of stink bugs hibernating in your home through winter.

Almost made it... Jokes aside, I hate sticky traps but @aseykay insisted on putting these things out. I come home, of course she's not so I have to be the executioner... but to add to the drama, the dog saw the mouse first and got caught on the sticky trap before this picture. Then this poor guy tried to crawl to the space under the sink. But a pest is a pest and ya gotta go... Mouse Wars Score:

Count the lies... There's some absolute stinkers which they must surely realise people know!
Let's start with an easy one, Dan, being the parasite that he is moved in with Amy not the other way around. To ensure he snagged an easy meal ticket he even gave up his "dream job" as a retained firefighter because her flat was outside of the accepted radius. But hey, who needs a job when you can live somewhere for free 😎
There's at least 5 more absolute whoppers in that story 🙈

The Beech Blight Aphid (Grylloprociphilus imbricator)- affectionately, and perhaps more accurately, referred to as the Boogie-Woogie Aphid💃. When disturbed, nymphs of all ages raise their rear ends and wag them up and down to intimidate and warn potential predators. But don't be fooled by their fluffy exteriors; these tiny fluffballs will tenaciously attack any threat by stabbing it with their straw-like mouthparts, which can even penetrate human skin!
Their white wooly appearance is thanks to feathery wax filaments coming out their rear ends. These filaments are supposed to deter insects such as wasps and beetles that may want to make a meal of the aphids.
Normally, the aphids stab beach trees and feed from the tree's sugar-rich phloem. The high pressure liquid actually causes aphids to secrete "honeydew" from their rear ends. This sticky substance creates the perfect environment for a spongey black fungus, Scorias spongiosa, to grow around and on the infested tree. They don't normally cause any lasting damage to the trees they feed from, but there is evidence that the sooty mould prevents new saplings from establishing.
Environment Southland is playing a key role in a team overseeing development of a mobile app that will help New Zealanders protect the environment from pests.
The regional council is an official champion of the app that’s being developed with funding from Envirolink as part of a larger BioHeritage Challenge project led by Scion’s Dr Steve Pawson.
