Assassin bugs are generalist predators that will hunt and eat smaller insect pests in the garden. They will survive the winter in the adult stage and are an important predator to attract and keep in your Texas garden.
How to attract assassin bugs
Assassin bugs will naturally be attracted to areas with lots of dense foliage, flowering plants, and food sources. This means that the chances are you already have some assassin bugs around if you have a healthy abundance of life in your garden, and if you don't spray general pesticides. You can add more assassin bugs to your garden by purchasing eggs from Arbico Organics:
