The bug didn’t move a lot especially when I put it in a cup and tried to transfer it to the Ziploc bag. It was damp outside today because during the night it rained and so the plant that the bug was resting at was pretty moist. The plant was also a few feet in the air and hangs so it isn’t for an insect to get there.
