I never paid much attention to the bugs in Hong Kong until recently when I saw these beautiful little things on a Tea Tree.
It is called Tea Seed Bug (or Tea Shield Bug). The mature bug is very colourful at about 16-10mm long and 10-14mm wide.
It feeds on Tea Seeds, therefore it is a pest.
The multiple eggs are usually laid on the back of the leaves.
The young bugs are also bright coloured.
These Red Stink Bugs look very pretty too.
The male is usually smaller than the female.
Unlike the Tea Seed bug, the Red Stink Bug feeds on small insects and flies.
