Vibrant Stinkbug ~


On my Bromeliad...
I've not seen one here before!
Missing one front antennae.
Super close-up , and as you say vibrant in colour - do they damage plants?

@beryl Thanks Beryl!
Mr google says. Stink bugs are orange to black, flat bodied insects growing up to 2.5cm in length that release caustic, smelly secretions when disturbed. They can do a lot of damage as they suck sap from new shoots and flower stems causing them to wither, and then you’ve lost your crop!

They don't have many redeeming features do they
