  1. Several different bugs on a milkweed family plant

    2. Monarch caterpillar (or at least in the same genus) 3-4. Some species of milkweed bug, both nymphs and adults 5. Lacewing larva 6. Aphid 7. Another species of aphid
  2. Field Sparrow?

    Agreed with lark sparrow
  3. Which beetle?

    Probably the reddish-brown stag beetle, Lucanus capreolus. http://bugguide.net/node/view/3107
  4. What Beetle?

    Adults likely feed on sap and other sugary fluids. You don't need to worry about them being in your yard.
  5. What Beetle?

    Mallodon dasystomus - hardwood stump borer http://bugguide.net/node/view/4257
  6. Yellow sac spider?

    You get Latrodectus variolus, the northern black widow, in New York. There's no actual evidence of necrosis linked to a yellow sac spider bite. There are implications, but nothing backing it up, much like recluse bites in areas where they don't occur.
  7. What is this?

    Agreed with snowberry clearwing.
  8. What beetle?

    Agreed with N. americana
  9. Unknown spider Vicksburg Mississippi

    Definitely a trapdoor spider, probably something in the genus Ummidia. http://bugguide.net/node/view/6935
  10. What camouflaged cricket or grasshopper?!

    With the single deep cut in the pronotum I'd call it Dissosteira carolina, the Carolina grasshopper. Patterning and coloration can be extremely variable in this species, most likely due to environmental pressures.
  11. This fly is bugging me

    Might be Vella americana - http://bugguide.net/node/view/182312
  12. Share your 2017 lifers!

    I've seen plenty of probably new species (going several hours south for the summer helps ), but getting photos has proven challenging so far. Will keep trying though!
  13. Ontario insect - anyone recognize the family ?

    Looks like a Melanopline grasshopper nymph. No way to go to species on it since Melanoplus is one of the most difficult acridid genera to ID as adults, let alone nymphs.
  14. What kind of butterfly?

    Location would help. I'd be willing to bet this wasn't in Manitoba
  15. What in the world are these?!

    Family is Hypogastruridae - http://bugguide.net/node/view/16160
