    Default Can you identify this insect?

    Since I had success in identifying a large weed growing in the garden a while back, I figured I'd try again. This time, with a weird bug I found in my room!

    Anyone know what it is? I don't

    * it's size is about half an inch.

    Hi Bob

    Looks like just a regular crawly to me that was under you bed. The real question here is not what kind of bug is this but "When was the last time you dusted under the furniture".........frank

    Bob -- I'm sure you'll find it at this wonderful site: http://www.pestcontrolcanada.com/Que...his%20pest.htm It is an amazing resource for anyone trying to identify bugs and spiders. Although 'Canada' is in the name it covers insects from all over. I'm not a bug person but I have enjoyed spending several hours looking at the wide amout of info that site contains.

    Now what I'm really wondering about is that pink background in your pic. Do you live in a Barbie Dream House?

    Regards, Ross

    That would obviously be the Great Ontario White Frosted EXTREMELY-Creepy-Looking-Thing-That-Immediately-Needs-To-Be-Removed-From-The-House bug.

    And I too would like to know the background of this pink floor of yours...

    Call in the bug squad- I've taken the liberty of sending your picture to an american university for identification if they come up with the answer I will let you know. It may be the water bug (Hemiptera: Belostomatidae as seen on the site Ross sent.

    Last time I dusted under the furnature? Ummm... yesterday?

    The bug, I took outside and placed on top of the hood of the car (which is more of a burgundy colour) and took the photos there.

    Thanks for that link, Ross! I added it to my favorites.

    This bug didn't move fast, nothing like the House Centipede, which we find too from time to time. Those are fast! House Centipede
