Do you have yucca planted in your landscape? Have you checked it lately for pest problems?
Yucca plant bugs are in the order Hemiptera and are related to other sucking pests such as stink bugs and leaf-footed bugs, but are much smaller. Adult yucca plant bugs have a bright reddish-orange head and thorax with dark bluish-black wings. Immature yucca plant bugs (nymphs) look similar to adults but do not have fully developed wings. Since immatures do not have their wings fully developed, they’re more red than black in color.
