I have this bug all over my brocolli (yes I grew broccoli late). I can't figure out what it is, but it seems to only be on my brocolli. Can someone tell me if this is a good bug or bad bug to have in the garden?

We had the same bug on our turnip leaves a few days ago here in Modesto...not sure what it is but we didn't find any holes in the leaves so we're thinking it's a good bug!

I've never seen anything like that before, but a quick Google found this... does this look about right?

Harlequin Cabbage Bug -- it's a bad bug. It likes to suck the juices of your broccoli and cabbage. http://bugguide.net/node/view/557

Found it on my broccoli too a couple of weeks ago. It's a pretty bug though!

Ick. I will have to keep a lookout for it. My one cabbage plant has finally awoken from its slumber!

Thanks. I figured my broccolli died from our heat. I guess it was this bug... and the heat.

Hey, welcome to the forum, tzimmerm! glad you\'re here Sorry to hear about your broccoli. I think many of us have had a tough year in one way or another. I had good luck with broccoli raab this spring til the flea beetles got it. May try it again here shortly....

"It likes to suck the juices of your broccoli and cabbage"

I think I am going to call it the Transylvania cabbage bug. Maybe I should grow garlic next to my broccoli to keep it away.

Look at the Harlequin bug's egg cases! I haven't seen any of them, just the bugs, but I may start looking.
