True bugs are probably the least known bug order in the world. It consists of many families, including cicadas, hoppers, and assassin bugs. Most true bugs are considered pests, like aphids and such, but I personally find them fascinating. Therefore my mission is to collect as much information about the true bugs of the western US so that we can go out into our backyards and really know what's out there!
