Baby lady bugs?
I spotted a ton of small round red bugs on my alyssum this morning. They look like they could be baby lady bugs. I kinda thought it was too late and too hot for them. I also spotted other red/black bugs that are more "armor" shaped. I'm praying they're not a Chernobylized deviant strain of squash bugs...except they're not in the squash garden.
It was hard to get a clear pic of them with my phone because they're so small. If you look on the left side of the photo you can kind of make them out.
Can anyone confirm the identity of these bugs??
