I've got these little red bugs - they look kind of like red lily beetles, but they have spots on them. Not a ladybug, they're more rectangular-ish. And, they're not on my lilies! They're hanging out behind my shed, on some weeds, and nearby the spearmint. I don't see them munching, just hopping around when I walk by and disturb them. Wish I could get a picture - but they're too small and my camera won't focus well enough. Any thoughts?

Geesh I forgot about this thread - sorry, Weezie, if I don't leave breadcrumbs, I can't find my way back! laugh

I actually figured out from lots of picture searching, that they were stink bug nymphs . At least that's what I think they were. Suddenly they were gone, and I started noticing more stink bugs. Unless the stink bugs were natural predators and had a big meal wink If you notice the one on the far left, that's black & red, that's pretty much what they looked like.
