Bug ID please (with pic)
Hey there! Hoping someone could tell me what these bugs are and if they are "bad". Last week I found a couple on a peony and squashed them. The buds of the peony were getting eaten (sometimes all of it, sometimes just a circular hole or start of one) so I figured these were the culprits. Yes?
Today I found several dozen living (and mating, lol) on a nearby columbine. I figured I better find out what these things are quick before they lay more eggs!
So are they 'bad' bugs? Should I get rid of them and if so HOW? Pinch off like I did before? I try not to use chemical sprays unless it is a serious problem...
Thanks for any help!
