Bullseye Pest Management serves pest control all over Dallas Fort Worth and the surrounding areas. We were fortunate enough to get these great photos of a hatching of Milkweed Assassin Bugs on a Lemonquat plant. These bugs are certainly alarming looking and your first instinct might be to want to irradiate them. We’ve posted this image online because it’s a great shot of these recently hatched Milkweed Assassin Bugs and to let people know that they don’t have to worry about them. (Unless you’re raising butterflies).

Milkweed Assassin Bugs eat moths and flies and caterpillars, the types of insects that gardeners and citrus growers want dealt with. And they disperse pretty rapidly; these little guys were gone within the hour of being spotted and photographed.
