I've got an insect on my window ledge with a green body about an inch long with 6 red legs and 2 long antennae. If I wasn't a tough guy it would give me the heeby jeebies.
It looks like a mini locust.
Any one know what it might be?
There used to be locusts in Pott Shrigley (cheshire) at the old brickworks. Apparently they came back in the packing cases from Africa (Nigeria or Egypt I think) and due to the warmth of the environs of the brickworks they thrived.
Italian for Shield bug is Cimicee (pronounced chimichee) - top fact!
