Found these around the garden, are they good or bad lasy bugs?

I’ve never seen Ladybugs that look that, there are no spots on them.

I’m not real familiar with a lot of the bugs you might run into outdoors, but those look more like some sort of “leaf beetle” maybe, or maybe harlequin bugs.

They haven’t ate any leaves yet, I will let you know if they do.

They haven’t ate any leaves, and look like they took care of spider mites on another plant.

Those are Ladybug larvae. The good news is; They eat pests that harm your plant; The bad news is; They do not thrive in areas without pests being available for them to eat.

Once they devour pests bugs, they go away.
