Damn bugs
    #2969013 - 08/06/04 01:49 AM (18 years, 3 months ago)

I have a little cactus garden with a few diff. kinds of cacti. All of them are doing great until recently I have these little green bugs that kinda look like crabs or spiders on my P. torches. They never seem to hurt them so I left them be. Well, recently I've noticed a new visitor to by plants, these little bugs that look like lady bugs, except that they are yellow with black spots instead of red. I know ladybugs eat aphids and other pests and thought maybe these would also so I left them. Now my cacti have little spots that have been chewed on by some evil little bug. Should I do anything to treat the spots that have been eaten, and would a nicotine based pesticide be ok for cacti???

Here is a pic, sorry its not very clear

any help would be appriciated

i dont know what it is, but for small little buggers a liquid dishsoap diluted with water and sprayed kills em on site. messy but effective. vapona pest strips kill anything that comes near em, could try that. that shit is very nasty though and i dont think id want it anywhere me or anything i touch.

wonder what kind of visuals a bug would have? makes me think.

I see that little beetle there. It looks really fuzzy but that is not a lady bug, nor does it look like one.

Shit looks like a Bean beetle.

thats the little bastard!!! There is always one and only one on each torch, I'll kill them and a couple hours later, they magicaly return. I thought they looked like a ladybug but upon further inspection I saw that they had a longer body and a diff shell. Will the hurt the cactus or eat other pests???
Also, should I clean the spot thats been eaten with peroxide and apply sulfur??? Or just let it dry and scab???

BTW, thanks for the link, after reading that I believe thats what has been feeding on my torch because its only on the new growth.  I'll take care of the little buggers...  :guns:

id let it scab. unless it starts getting black and growing and/or mushy. shouldnt though. keep the area dry and it should heal up no problem at all.

i dont recognize the name but i sure recognice that beetle. is it "Diabrotica undecimpunctata? those fuckers eat the shit out of our potatoes. it is supposed to eat plants in the niteshade family, never heard of them eating a cacti.
