Here are my photos for today of the Spotted Cucumber Beetle.

The Spotted Cucumber Beetle (Diabrotica undeciumpunctata howardi) is a destructive beetle in vegetable gardens. It is a yellowish-green color with 12 spots on its back and is 1/4 inch long.

You will see these beetles when the temperature gets warmer in mid-spring and all through the summer. It is the larvae of the spotted cucumber beetle that does the most damage. The larvae, called grubs chew on the roots of cucumber, melons, beans, squash and pumpkins. They also feed on the roots of corn which has given them another name; Southern Corn Rootworms.

Adults feed on seedlings, foliage, fruit and flowers.

Yay! I captured its tiny face! Don't squint too hard.

Thanks for stopping by!

All photos are my own.

The Spotted Cucumber Beetle is cute, i had seen him in another color. We already know that not all insects contribute to the plants without destroying them, tap to be attentive. Very good information, valued.

Thanks kitty! The way I see it, flies, fleas and ticks have got to die!
Thanks so much for the TRDO. : )

@whatisnew I agree with that. Happy day. ❤️

Hopefully the last two! @wakeupkitty 🦟🦟
Did you feed them to your Venus flytrap plant?

@ninahaskin No I drowned them to be sure they won't arise out of the death again. ❤️

Lol! The little shits probably bred in the water before drowning! @wakeupkitty

Big chance... I will add something to the water! 🤫

Haha! 🦟☣🦟

Howdy Butterfly! So we're supposed to smash any of these we see right? How was your Christmas?

Hi Jonboy! No, not unless you are infested with them. My Christmas was wonderful, thanks for asking. I have been very busy visiting with family and friends. How was your Christmas?
Thanks for stopping by and for your support Jonboy! : )

Well good...about having a wonderful Christmas. We have no family here so with that and Mrs. J working most of the holiday time we didn't do anything this year which is fine. But I'm glad you were able to!

What a great set of shots! Especially the first shot! I have never even heard of a cucumber beetle. I just love the color of him!


Thanks so much @dswigle! I am so happy that you learned something from my post. Love it when that happens. And thanks so much for the tip! : )
Wishing you a healthy, happy New Year and new decade! : )

🎁 Hi @whatisnew! You have received 0.1 STEEM tip from @dswigle!

@dswigle wrote lately about: The Seventh Day Of Christmas Feel free to follow @dswigle if you like it :)

Sending tips with @tipU - how to guide.

This beetle is beautiful with yellow color and amazing spots. It's unfortunate that they damage those vegetables.

The information you shared is interesting! Yeah! You can capture its tiny face! Great shot!

Wishing you and my brothers a Happy and Wonderous New Year! ;)

Thanks so much sis! I am always happy when I can capture my subject's face. It isn't easy.

Thanks for the New Year wishes! We all wish you a healthy and happy New Year and new decade! I hope you can spend it among beautiful nature filled with many white clouds and white flowers. Hugs!

You're welcome!

Thanks so much for your kind wishes. Yeah! I'm very happy while being among beautiful nature, especially with many white clouds and white flowers. You always know me well, my sis! A lot of love! ;)

Those little green guys are cute! :-)
