Cotton Harlequin Bug

Cotton Harlequin Bug Cecil Plains (768x1024)The Cotton Harlequin Bug (also known as Hibiscus Harlequin Bugs), part of the Jewel Bug family, can be a fairly common sight in the cotton and are considered a minor pest, though we rarely treat for them. Their feeding can allow the introduction of disease into the cotton boll where boll rot can occur. They can also be a problem in the household garden where their feeding can abort flowers.
