1 – this brown-winged thing populates my willow tree in may. what is it and is it harmful to fruit trees e.g. cherry, plum, apricot, pear? or is it harmful to anything else?
2 – this ladybird-like thing – is it a ladybird and does it damage my grapes or anything else?
3 – found this in wood i was about to chop up
i like bugs and i have a redstart with babies at the moment so i do not want to destroy anything he might want to eat, am just curious about the critters. i can look them up on the net once i know what they are called.
Beetle #1 is a Scarab in the family Scarabidae, but we do not know the species. Beetle #3 is a Longicorn in the family Cerambycidae, but we do not know the species. Beetle #2 is striking in color and markings, but we cannot determine its family. It somewhat resembles the Pleasing Fungus Beetles in the family Erotylidae, but your photo does not reveal enough of the physical characteristics to be certain.
