These Squash Bugs are Leaffooted Bugs, although there is no part of the leg that
resemble leaves, like this other Leaffooted bug.  They resemble members of the
 beneficial Assassin Bug family, who would prey on the squash bug if given a chance.
 Squash Bugs are garden pests, feeding on pumpkin and squash.  
Below are the tiny
eggs laid on top of the leaves in gardens.
