Geocoris sp.

Species in the genus Geocoris are commonly dubbed “bigeyed” bugs, and many serve as natural enemies of several agricultural insect pests. One example of habitat management for integrated pest management is the planting of red clover in cucumber fields. The red clover increases concentration of bigeyed bugs and other predator species that reduce pests of cucumber. (Photo credit: Charles Ray, Auburn University, Bugwood.org)
