Leaffooted bugs are relatively large bugs that primarily feed on plants. They are named for the shape of their back leg which has a flat, leaf-like projection.They are not a common home invader, but will sometimes enter the home during the winter in search of warmer places. They are usually not noticed until the spring when they try to make their way back outside. They don’t cause any damage or lay eggs inside and can easily be removed. Sighting these bugs within the home is a sign that your home is not properly sealed and other bugs are likely to be coming in as well.
