Many one evening, I smashed at least fifty around the porch light. Only about ten the next night, then last night none. Only a few bites on my Adenium seed pods, which these guys destroy.

They have a probiscus, mouth thing, that they punch into the seed pod and suck out the juice from the still-green seeds. I'd like to know the name of this enemy of mine! At least they don't much run away while I'm trying to squish them. Thanks in advance!
