i think so, but its not a malteaser bug

oO squish it !!!

The other week I was tidying up and came across this big mad black wasp type thing, was at least an inch and a half long, i picked it up on the shovel and threw it outside, didn't seem to have any wings though but had six legs, antenna and a segmented body just like a wasp.

Freaked me right out.

sleeping bags tonight

Its the lesser spotted sleeping bag bug...

its certainly a type of shield bug, probably the common genus Palomena, it is a bit skinnier than usual though

It looks a bit like the stink bug/shield bug I asked the same question on here about a few months ago. If it is, don't squish it as they do STINK.
