Western Conifer Seed Bug - Leptoglossus occidentalis
Thompson Falls, Sanders County, Montana, USA
August 20, 2006
This is one of the early leaf-footed bugs. By now, late September, they are swarming the town. Even though they feed on tree parts, they are found in masses on buildings in the area. People here call them stink bugs, and my daughter thinks they smell like "green apple".
