Hi Agnes, Thanks a lot for the help and id suggestions. I really appreciate :)
Arvin, I think your bug is Dysdercus poecilus.Distribution includes Philippines: http://psybugs.biota.biodiv.tw/pages/588....Comparison with D. cingulatus: http://freebsd.tspes.ntpc.edu.tw/~afu/56....
It also looks like a type of a Cotton Stainer bug -- Dysdercus cingulatus (http://eol.org/pages/3697107/overview) and Dysdercus koeningii (http://eol.org/pages/33856/overview), except that these two have two black dots in place of the band at the back. I also found an almost similar image to your spotting in this blogsite - http://npssimog.blogspot.com/2010_09_01_....
Thank you DewandaAnn! Salamat po:)
I think this is a type of harliquin insect, dont know specific type though. U can do more research to find it by looking up different species of the harliquin type insect.
