(squeamish readers, beware.)
ever seen the movie starship troopers? it can be summarized as giant alien bugs battling the entire human race. and, for the most part, winning.
the assassin bugs are up to something strange on the serrano plant. they're congregating. it's like an assassin bug family reunion, with representatives of several generations in attendance.

yesterday afternoon i saw a good-sized herd of recently hatched nymphs in the island bed; bye-bye aphids!
