spined stilt bug (Jalysus wickhami ) on burley tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (burley type)) - 1440133

spined stilt bug
Jalysus wickhami Van Duzee, 1906

Host: burley tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (burley type) L.)
Descriptor: Adult(s)
Description: Spined stilt bugs are slender brown bugs about 1/2 inch in length when full grown. They have long thread-like legs and antennae. Nymphs are similar to the adults but are smaller, lighter in color, and wingless. Stilt bugs are commonly seen walking slowly over tobacco plants or flying about the field in search of prey. These important beneficials feed on hornworm and budworm eggs (and to some extent on aphids) and may have a major impact on reducing damage caused by these pests.
