The powderpuff bush that is bigger than a car, had bugs all over it, there were hundreds, maybe thousands of them.
Bob: "look, lady bugs, I have never seen so many of them"
Sandra: No, these aren't lady bugs, they look funny"
Bob: 'look at this one, it's looks like a ladybug but is not red and black"
Sandra: "they are all a little different, so what is this one? it's blue and long"
could it be a baby one?
Bob:"don't think so, doesn't look like it is, must be different bugs"
Sandra: "look, some are round and some are oval, they are stuck in the leaves, hanging on"
Per google, the above photo is a larvae, a couple of days hatched from the eggs the ladies were laying in the leaves.

HELOOOO Google, can you tell me if this is a lady bug? are these larvae? YES it is an Asian Lady bug only they are really Lady Beetles, we just CALL them Lady Bugs because they are cute.
we have a whole Family, many families of lady bugs on our bush, do they harm the bush, I asked google. NO, but they can swarm and get in your house or garage and make a big mess. YIKES how can something so cute do that. they don't hurt anything, it is just difficult to live with fluttering bugs in your mouth and ears and on your food. We are hoping they Move On and do not Swarm!
