Bug ID please

therealdealMay 13, 2013

I have searched and cannot find a bug that looks like this. Any ideas?

they are all over my cucumbers and some on the beans and tomatoes.

they are about the size of a ladybug, a little smaller.

Are they good or bad bugs? Any help is greatly appreciated.

thank you

Is this it?
A southern green stink bug nymph. I don't know if it is good or bad, sorry.

If it is a stink bug nymph, it is very bad. They are much easier to kill as nymphs so you better get started.

If it has the fully rounded carapace, it's likely one of numerous varieties of ladybug. A few ladybugs don't have the rounded shell, but most do.

It is a southern green stink bug nymph. thank you for the help. I must have gotten rid of at lest 20 already. And I do see a fair amount of the adults too.

Thanks again.

There are good stink bugs. I'm not sure how to tell which is which. Ask your ag agent at your local Agricultural center. It should be under Dept. of Agriculture in your phone book if you don't know where they are. In my phone book it is located in the blue pages. You shouldn't kill any good bugs.
