Caption: The Small Eastern Milkweed Bug (Lygaeus kalmii) can be found in meadows and fields throughout the United States and southern Canada. It feeds on the seeds of Milkweed plants and nectar from various flowers. It is immune to the toxins produced by the Milkweed but is itself poisonous to other insect predators.
