Flower bug

The Flower bug also called Minute Pirate Bug, or Anthocorid Bug, any member of the insect family Anthocoridae (order Heteroptera), which numbers about 400 species. The flower bug is important because it feeds on aphids and aphid eggs, although several species suck human blood (e.g., the cosmopolitan Lectocoris campestris and the Sudanese Anthocoris kingi).
