Okay gardening friends, I need your help. I have found the creatures in the photo above on several of my plants: peppers, pumpkins and tomatoes. I don’t recognize these critters and haven’t been able to identify them. I also so far have not been able to tell if they are good bugs or bad bugs. (“Are you a good witch or a bad witch?“) I haven’t noticed any particular damage, although, not knowing what they are I don’t really know what to look for.
So gardening connoisseurs, what is this creature that seems to have made my plants its new home?
And P.S. – I was digging up some potatoes and coincidentally pulled up one of the squash vine borer buggers that ate the guts out of my zucchini plant (and yellow squash, but more on that later). It was squiggly and icky. After we examined it and poked at it for a while, it met its end. Goodbye, squash vine borer.
