  1. Seen this one hanging out under a leaf. He doesn't appear to be damaging anything nor laying eggs. 20190623_134242.jpg

    FOE! That looks like a cucumber beetle. (kinda sorta looks like a ladybug, but is green.)

    Oh wait...maybe its from the pic, cuz looks like it had long legs extending out. Scratch that. Pic is playing mind games on me.

    * Can you try to get a better pic of him? I was mistaken. Not a cucumber beetle.
  3. The usual rule is
    Mouth parts facing down = plant eater = bad
    Mouth parts facing forward = predator insect = good

  4. It's a fish fly/mayfly you live near water? It's almost there season they only live for like 2 weeks

  6. Thanks. I did look for the mouth parts facing down as @BrassNwood suggested and seen none so figured it was safe to leave him be till the vets chimed in.
