    Hi All,Melting in the garden today, like a forth bridge with the hose pipe in mist setting for the small plants that are not big enough to go outside yet.
    Came a across a new bug today which I have never seen before. There seems to be a lot of them just wondering around on the pots & containers doing nothing. I am sure one of them got up my T shirt and bite me which was painful. Not growing any horns yet so could be non poisonous!
    Any body got a name for this bug and should it be treated with respect or the big size 9 boot!!

      Its a lady bug larvae, excellent for the garden, they eat aphids / greenflys.
