Harlequin Bug = Pest


While we appreciate biodiversity and interesting insects, this particular one - the Harlequin Bug, Murgantia histrionica - is one of the top pests in our area. Bad news bug. So if you  happen to pass through the garden and see an adult (pictured), eggs or nymphs (visible on the Grow It Eat It site here) please feel free to relocate them to the farthest dumpster!

  2. Do you know of any organic way to get rid of harlequin bugs (we have been picking off adults, nymphs & eggs, but they are pretty out of control). They have done a lot of damage in our garden.
