Capsid Bug

Miridae

Description:

Size: 6 mm. Family Miridae.

Habitat:

On the wall.

Notes:

They are small, terrestrial insects, usually oval-shaped or elongate and measuring less than 12 mm in length. Some are brightly coloured, others drab or dark. Some genera are ant mimics at certain stages of life. Most of the more well-known mirids have received attention because they are agricultural pests. They pierce plant tissues and feed on the juices.
