365/73 ~ Friend or Foe? ~

I was laying in one of my flower beds (yes, in the privacy of my backyard,lol), photographing some purple lantana clusters.  I didn't notice this little red bug until I looked at the photos on the computer...do you see him?  Lucky shot!

  4. I'm from the old school and I would have probably smooshed him after taking the shot. And that's a shame because I have no clue whether this is a beneficial or a destructive bug. I guess I need to look that one up to quiet my conscience. LOL

  8. They look like baby spider mites, if you are lucky they are only a few weeks old. They are not good for your plants, they will suck the nutrients out of the stem and eventually kill the plant. Spray liberally with an insecticide. Also , beware, they like to spread from plant to plant

    Awesome shot of them though! : )
