what kind of bug is this?


This bug will travel alone or in pairs. If in pairs, it appears to be giving piggy back rides. They do have wings but don't fly very far. They come out in the summer, normally in afternoons and evenigs.

Box Elder bugs. And they're mating, not giving piggyback rides.

Aren’t these what they call “love bugs” in Florida? Don’t think they are boxelders, but there is a resemblance. Don’t look like our northeastern boxelder, at least. Where are you located?

Oh my goodness that is a red back vampire beetle, on bite from that nasty beast and you will be rendered ageless for eternity......, or it could be a box elder, piggy back style is a box juvenile....
