Years ago, every time the kekabu fruits at the back of Mom's House dry up and send fluffy cotton-like material and drop seeds on the ground, these insects will always be around. I cant figure out where they come from and why they hang around the kekabu seeds and the fluffy cotton-like material of kekabu. They dont bite... harmless for such an angry and fiery look with full red colour!
I never see these red bugs in our little vegetable garden before. But this morning, I saw a colony hiding behind roselle and lemon grass leaves. I assumed they are feeding on the leaves. These leaves could just be the thing they looking after. Huh.., after a month and a half absence, new creature start to pop up in our our garden.
Some of you may know the name of these red bugs.
I just call them kumbang kekabu merah....
