Boxelder bugs — larvae and adults — remove sap from seeds, flowers, and leaves… but they do not do much damage.  In the fall, they can congregate on the sunny side of buildings.  When i lived in Kansas, there were tons of them on the warm side of the house in the fall!

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original holistic-truth oriented prose and/or poetry involving mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped. I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy.

Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...

    • Yes, interesting perception! 🙂

      If you notice, the Elder bug has a proboscis extending from the front of it’s head down to the colorful leaf; it almost looks like just another one of the bug’s legs… but it isn’t! Its proboscis is used – like a straw – to suck sap and nutrients from the leaf and from other plant parts.
