Dear VA bug lover,
In this case, you chose wisely. This is an immature Assassin Bug, probably in the genus Zelus, and it is a predator that will help keep injurious insects from your orchid. We would urge you to exercise caution. Though not considered dangerous, we have received several reports of people being bitten by Assassin Bugs in the genus Zelus.
