Harlequin Cabbage Bugs, Murgantia histrionica, may be beautiful but they are common garden pests. Here is one of several sucking the life out of my Rocky Mountain Beeplants. #harlequinbug #bugs #bug #insects #insectsofinstagram #insectsphotography #gardenpests #

Noticing Nature: Harlequin Bug (Murgantia histrionica)
This true bug is a common garden pest native to Central America. It feeds primarily on plants in the cabbage and mustard families. While historically it was found only in the south, its range is spreading northward in America due to our warming climate that allows the adults to survive through the winter months. #harlequinbug #murgantiahistrionica #gardenpest #invasivespecies #globalwarming #noticingnature

Murgantia histrionica (also known as the harlequin bug) is the cutest bean of stink bug family. BUT alas they are bad! They love to annihilate pretty much any plant in the mustard family and do a number on crops out south. Sure are fun to look at though.

A very colourful harlequin bug, either testing the wind direction or waving hello to the insect lovers out there 😄

Swipe to see these berries grow up 🍇 👉🏻 These are Hibiscus Harlequin Bugs (Tectocoris diophthalmus). They’re a type of shield bug (family Scutelleridae) which are a stunning group of insects. As you’ll see on the pictures, these bugs also display parental care and young nymphs typically aggregate into groups. This is thought to decrease the threat of predation and parasitism, and often you’ll see them disperse as they get older and less vulnerable. They also need to disperse as they get older because these sap-sucking insects can cause a lot of damage to a plant, and each individual will require more ‘sap’ as they grow older. You can often find adults on the same bush together though, as they never seem to travel too far from home. Because of their large numbers and feeding pattern, these beautiful bugs are often considered pests too, although I’m always happy to see them. 🍇 Young instars start off red, transition into metallic blues, and adults develop a full ‘shield’ or scutellum. Adult females are bright orange 🍊 while adult males maintain their shiny blues 🦋

Caught this Harlequin Bug (Murgantia histrionica) shedding. Unlike humans, if a bug does not like their skeleton, they can just take it off.
Like a jacket.

I stopped on my walk today to take off my jacket in the warm Sydney winter sun and noticed this gorgeous coloured bug on the fence beside me. Apparently it’s a Tectocoris diophthalmus, commonly known as the Hibiscus Harlequin Bug or Cotton Harlequin Bug. Amazing colours and very small.

Despite the rain, mosquitoes, biting flies, and heat I managed to enjoy my #hike in the #desplainesrivervalley today. I spotted a strange cluster of young #insects on a tall blade of grass, underneath what appeared to be their #eggcases. (Update: #harlequinbug)Then I saw a light colored #chicoryflower of which I see much fewer than the blue.  The #bumblebee was working on the #wildbergmot or native #beebalm like many other #insects. The #mantis looks to me like an invasive #chinesemantis. The #trumpetvine #blooms were just emerging and the #sweetpea was fragrant. A #leopardfrog finally sat still long enough for me to get a shot. The #paintedturtle seemed startled when I noticed her laying eggs and the #northernwatersnake didn’t love being moved off the #centennialtrail.  #nature #naturephotography  #macrophotography #macro #hiking #desplainesriver #blackpartridgewoods #waterfallglen #wildforfauna #wildforflora #prairie

Weeds and Bugs! This is my reality.  Weeds have taken over!  Everywhere. I just can't seem to keep up. 
Apparently I have yet to master the art of mulching. Every darned time I mulch,  the slugs and snails move in. 
Today I found the Harlequin bug population on the rise once again.  A couple weeks ago I sprayed insecticidle soap and hand picked the entire lot of them.  Eggs and all.  Now they're back.  I also found another bunch of kissing(?) bugs.  I sprayed again this evening and plan to check it out tomorrow. 
Insecticidle soap? What're your thoughts?  Good or Bad for us and our gardens?  I'm not an organic gardener yet but don't like chemicals either. I'm a work in progress.

As much as I hate these little bastards for decimating my garden edibles and dahlias they really are quite spectacular looking bugs. Must get my phone fixed and get a clearer shot.

It’s Wednesday which means it’s time for another “What’s That?” Post! This week we’re talking about another garden pest: Harlequin Bugs.
🌿
Harlequin bugs are orangeish-red and black mottled insects that can do a lot of damage on cole crops, tomatoes and potatoes when in high numbers.  They feed on the plant sap, causing stippling of leaves and distortions in the heads of cabbage and brussels sprouts. 🌿
To learn more about how to control these pests, and to see pictures of their unique eggs, please visit the “What’s That” link in our bio. Have you seen these bugs around?

Only some female (orange coloured) harlequin bugs were left on this new hibiscus this week. 
Interesting to see how they are dark red underneath..
