I hope this is not already the first of the conenose bugs. We had scores of them last year in the patio area where our dogs sleep.


I share your disappointment...
...and after seeing this post I went ahead and posted a pic of my own to ID Request (see here) of what is probably an even tinier, younger nymph than the one you've shown here. Just thought you might be interested, considering we seem to be in the same unhappy situation...

Hate to break it to you....
But it 'is' a Triatoma nymph.

Well, at least I got it right!
