Small Yellow Bugs With Black Spots That Look Like a Ladybug

I don't want to kill beneficial bugs, but these seem to be eatings holes in the leaves and flowers of my brugs.
I guess they are some kind of asian beatle. Should I kill them or leave them alone??

Sounds like the spotted cucumber beetle. I'd spray them! They can't bee good if they're eating your flowers!

Thank you kasha, that looks like the ones.
I don't normally use anything, but sometimes use Neem oil or insecticidial soap. Will one of those work?

I think they should. Try it and see! :)

I had those one year and I would take a bowl of soapy water out once or twice a day and drown them. I did not have a problem with them after that. They do look so much like ladybugs.
