Squash Bug Mouthparts
Squash bugs, Anasa tristis, are “true bugs” that utilize their piercing sucking mouthparts to remove plant juices. They attack cucurbits (squash, cucumbers, and melons) throughout Central America, the United States, and southern Canada, with a preference for squash and pumpkins. They are generally found on well-established plants as opposed to being a pest of seedling plants.
