what are these bugs?
Hello,
I found these bugs on a beech tree, near a lake in Westchester County, about 1 hour north of Manhattan. A lake is nearby, some bugs were burrowed into the bark. What are they? Thanks
Irene

Hi Irene,
This is a Ladybird Beetle Larva and several Pupae. “Ladybugs” are beneficial insects that feed on Aphids, Scale and other injurious plant pests.
