Mystery bug solved
Back in October I began seeing this insect. It was not alone. Well I finally asked Richard at the Jekyll Island 4-h Center. He knew right off the bat. These insects are twostriped walking sticks. They are in the young palm trees. See them......
Another name is Musk Mare for they defend themselves by spraying a strong smelling mist. The mist is very painfully if it gets in your eyes so do not get to close. Mystery solved
