It’s not a green ladybug!

Don’t be fooled! This is NOT a green ladybug! The cucumber beetle is a common pest that feeds on the leaves of many vegetables as well soft fruit, though it’s not fussy and can be found in many parts of the yard. While they may be a just a nuisance on your roses, they can do some significant damage to your cucumber plants, and control can be tricky. Providing a habitat for general predators is a good first step.
