Plant bug

Plant bug

6061   Hi my name is Nadine from Edmonton, AB. This bug I found after I came inside from out on the front area of my building. I sat down on my couch and put my feet up to feel a lil movement on my leg. I freaked to see this guy and grabbed him (he lost a leg in this process) to put him in a container. I’m a lil sensitive after going through bed bug cleaning and spraying for 3 months. A lil paranoid maybe.. It’s a warm evening where the sun was setting and a slight cool breeze. I’m not sure if this guy hitched a ride from outside or my house is hiding more friends??? What is he?

This is a plant bug in the family Miridae; just an accidental intruder that you need not worry about. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
