The Attached bug species invading my vegetable vines and sucks on the vegetable sap on the wines.can you help identify this ?they come in hundreds….
This is some species of True Bug in the suborder Heteroptera, which contains many species that are injurious to cultivated plants. We will post your images and try to determine the species.
Thank you for your feedback. Await more inputs if you can get more details.
You are absolutely right. It is a true bug. Most of my vegetable vines have withered after the onslaught by these bugs. Has a distinct stink. So birds avoid the bugs.
Will appreciate more inputs from you and any inputs on eradication of these pests. For you information I grow organic vegetables in my small farm in Noida near New Delhi, India. Therefore do not use any chemical fertilizers or pesticides.
