Are these lightning bug larvae? They bore right into figs and strawberries.
I don’t know the name but I have a ton of them on ground drop fruit which they love. They are not ladybug (or lightning bug) larvae but they look somewhat similar.
I wonder if that could be the larva of the Asian Beatle .
The head area and the lack of abdominal taper on your larva seems wrong for lightning bug/firefly larva.
Asian beetle is too general as there are Asian lady beetles and Asian longhorn beetles, and perhaps other “Asian” beetles.
It’s probably a Walking Stick insect.Brady https://www.whatsthatbug.com/2010/06/27/northern-two-striped-walkingstick/
@mamuang, you are correct. Up close you can see it is two insects. I was guessing either a predator on one or a offspring. Very strange look. I thought walking stick too but not sure after looking closely. Maybe a bug expert so to speak will know. I’ve never seen it here before.
Looking at that pic makes my skin crawls!!!
The picture of the 2 walking stick insects . They are mating .
As I suspected…TY Jerry
That is a caterpillar is now the host for parasitic wasps. Win
Very glad I’m not that caterpillar!
Found this guy today. An Io Moth caterpillar. Luckily I picked it up with a shovel, you can see the spines that apparently break off in your skin if you touch it (not sure this will post with that much clarity). May be a threat to my pears, but seems more interested in the black cherry and maple, so I let it be.
Another issue growing fruit. Is this bacterial spot on my peach trees? I can’t tell for sure looking at online pictures. Thanks!
That looks like spot to me…
