Scentless Plant Bugs (Family Rhopalidae)

General: Scentless Plant Bugs (Family Rhopalidae) have piercing mouth parts and feed on plants by sucking their fluids. These tiny bugs are hard to identify to species, but look for the triangle or V-shaped mark on the back. Also notice the long segments on the antennae and the long legs.

Scentless Plant Bugs can be disease vectors for plants, but these tiny creatures are entirely harmless to humans.
