Squash lady beetle larvae, the insect that destroys my bitter gourd plant in a matter of days! Found out from the internet that it actually circles the leaf area in which it is going to feed!

The leaves have a web-like pattern after being eaten by these pests.

They have a rather spikey body!

It moves quite fast too!

I was having a hard time getting a clear photo of this pest!

Finally, a clear shot! See the interesting pattern of the leaves after being eaten by them. These insects looks kinda cute and yucky too! Have you seen this creepy pest in your garden?

Happy Gardening !!!
