Description

Got this info searching for the name of the bug online. The bug in my picture is identical to the one in the picture provided with this info. "The African Painted Bug, Bagrada hilaris, was first observed in Southern California in 2008." It is an invasive species that apparently poses a threat to plants in the cabbage family.
