I arrive at work before 5:am and the other morning when I went into the men's room I quickly went back to get my camera. I found this little critter trying to climb out of the sink. Does anybody have any idea what it's called?

Your second one is a leaf footed bug. Still trying to work out the first one but I am thinking some kind of broad head bug. Remember though, Penolta knows what he is talking about, I am just some guy who bought a book! :-)

PS: What you should do? Why take pictures of them of course!

Books are good, but it is all in having the right ones. This bug isn't in any of mine, either. So many bugs, so few in books. :sad:

Thanks Tim,
I have checked those sites. The closest I get on #1 is its close in appearance to a Boxelder bug only my version was about an inch long and much different coloring.:?
#2 looks like a cross between a leaf- footed bug and a Western Conifer Seed Bug. Can't match up the antenna.:-?

You said that -- I didn't. :blah:

You can put your pictures up on the "bug guide" site that Tim found. It must be a good one because they get about 200 queries per day (about 8 pages of thumbnails); if it isn't answered almost immediately it will get buried quickly.
