I was out in the garden and noticed this bug on my tomato plants. At first, I thought it was a Lady Bug metamorphasizing.
But it’s not.
I’m not sure what it is actually.
They remind me of a tick when it’s swelled up and they’re very messy – yep, a lot of poop and whatever that liquid is 🙁
The front end looks like some sort of a beetle…
They have a neck…
and really squishy looking bodies with lots of dots on the side.
The “tail” reminds me of the back two “legs” of a caterpillar.
And the spots…
The more these bugs ate, the bigger they got – all puffed up.
Don’t they sorta look like a Lady Bug??
But they’re not.
Anyone know what this is? Would love the info so I can know too!
