Helmeted squash bug

Euthochtha galeator


The helmeted squash bug is a member of the Family Coreidae (Leaf-footed Bugs). Can fly. Can be a pest. Also found out that they can put out an unpleasant odor if touched.


This helmeted squash bug was spotted on the side of our camper and then another was found on the floor inside the camper. Eek!
