Cotton Stainer Bugs

Dysdercus sp.


There's a small plague of these Cotton Stainer bugs (length approx. 2 cm / 0.8 inches) around here at the moment….


Hills overlooking Manila.


3rd photo: Meanwhile, about 1 metre away, a young one was feasting on a former friend… 4th photo: Still attached the lead adult rushed over and scared the little one away (sorry happened too fast for a photo) and took over the meal… 5th photo: Then decided to go climb a window screen, the other, as always, obliged to follow.
