Squash Bug

Common Name: Squash Bug
Scientific Name: Anasa tristis

This photos below show the squash bugs during their life cycle. The photos was taken in Putnam county, Tennessee late July.

The first photo below is of a nymph Squash Bug as it emerges from it's egg. The second photo shows a immature squash bug, and the last photo shows an adult female squash bug laying eggs on the leaf of a gourd plant in Putnam county, Tennessee late July. The eggs that are being laid are an almost green color, but as the nymph matures within the egg they turn to a brown almost maroon color before they hatch as you can see with the first image.
