What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Hi,
We have these orange and black bugs all in our oleander bushes. Do you have any idea what they are, and if they are harmful to the plant?
Thanks,
Kathy W.

Hi Kathy,
You have Large Milkweed Bugs, Oncopeltus fasciatus. According to our literature, though they get very plentiful, they do not harm garden plants nor crops, but drink nectar from both.
