    I don't know what these little guys are. I saw them on the side of my house. Once I got all the shots I wanted, I sprayed them with RAID. It appears that they spawned from that spore.

    If you care to know those are newly hatched assassin bugs or "wheel bugs". If you scroll down on the below link to about half-way down the page you'll see the exact same bugs you photographed.... and murdered! :(

    Believe it or not they are beneficial bugs but they do bite.

    Great capture... but yikes! :)

    They look like ants with red butts. No? 6 legs and 2 antennae. Hmmm...

    Thanks for tips which led to me doing some research. I only "murdered" them b/c they were located on my back porch near the door. and I didn't know what they heck they were. But again, thanks for the tips.

    Uh yea, I would have freaked the F out too! One may not have been bad, when you see a whole nest of them, I would be thinking they were crawling on me for days.

    OK, I have to admit, I would've probably done the same thing seeing as they were close to your home. I personally don't like bugs of any kind inside or near the entrance to my home. As long as they stay in their world I won't kill them! :sexywink:
