Any idea about this little critter. They are tearing up my Russian Sage, Cat Mint and other flowering plants. Helping to identify the bug would obviously help in seeking a solution, but to date I have been unsuccessful in placing a name on the critter. Thanks.
You never provided us with a location, and since we didn’t know if you were in North Carolina, England or Singapore, we could not take the time to research your query. Luckily for you, Helen wrote in the next day and let us know that her Four Lined Plant Bugs, Poecilocapsus lineatus, were eating the sage in her Virginia garden. Armed with the knowledge that this insect was North American, we quickly identified it.
