What Bug is that?



My cucumber vine is on its way out but it has given us lots of cucumbers to eat and to share around. We have even been sharing them with the local wildlife. These yellow bugs have invaded my veggie garden. They only eat the outside of the cucumber and leave these cute little tracks. I haven't seen them before. Has anyone out there in blogland seen these guys before or know what they are called? I would love to know.......:)

Absolutely no idea, but the cute little buggers also attacked our cucumbers and zucchini. That with all this heat has pretty much killed off the garden.

Interesting looking bug, I've never seen anything like it before.

I have no idea what kind of bug that is, but it's a great picture. It looks like something that should be in a nature magazine.

I would be betting on that little baby being a larvae stage of a ladybug...being cucumber I'm guessing the yellow and black type....

These look almost pretty, don't know what they are, but at least they only eat the outside of your produce.
