    Insect ID

    I've been noticing these little bugs around my plants quite a bit.

    What are they and do they hurt anything?

    Thanks

    Looks like your buddy is a sap-sucker. Feed him to a plant. Graphocephala coccinea - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Good growing,

    I've seen a few of them around, and they do chew on plants, but I've never known them to visibly damage any CPs.
