Found quite a few of these on a tree in the front yard. I tbink they are hurting the tree. How to get rjd of them and what kind of bug is it?
This is an introduced Torpedo Bug, Siphanta acuta, a species native to Australia. According to BugGuide: “not considered a pest in CA; considered a pest of banana, citrus, coffee, guava, macadamia, and many ornamentals in HI.”
