    Cool

    hi ursula

    looks like a type of ladybug. there is about 5000 species of ladybugs so not sure. if you have ladybugs in your garden, its a good thing since it eats other plant eating insects.

    a lot of useful info
    HERE

    also... welcome to the forum !

  3. Thanks given for this post:

    Hi

    Thanks - i know its a type of ladybug but was wondering if it is the harlequin Ladybug, an alien species.

    Also they seem to be eating my plats - very unusual for friendly lady bugs...
    Thanks for the help....
    Thanks for the site will have a look.

    I thin lady bug can help plants. Common Lady bug are pest predator, lady bugs help plants by eating the bugs that attack plant.
