Red Katydid Invasion
Posted on Jun 2nd, 2012
You have probably seen them -- kind of a reddish, grasshopper-like bug. If you have Live Oaks on your property, they're probably all around. And if you haven't seen them, you most certainly have heard them.
Here are a couple of links about the Red Katydids that are all over central Texas this year.
Article from AgriLife.org "Central Texas faces new red katydid invasion"
Article from Texas Entemology Website "Central Texas Leaf-Katydid -- Red Katydid" (with pictures)
More detailed information from BugGuide.net "Species Paracyrtophyllus robustus - Truncated True Katydid"
Thanks to Paul Watts for suggesting we post this information.
