soapberry bug

A snazzy red-and-black insect called the red-shouldered soapberry bug is being studied at American University in Washington, DC. These tiny insects are speedy, in more ways than one. This story comes from the series One Species at a Time, and it aired on Living on Earth a week and a half ago.
