Could anyone help me identify these insects/bugs found in my garden on a Victoria plum tree please? (taken earlier today, Nottinghamshire).
The plum tree we think is suffering from rust but if we are wrong the insects/bugs may have possibly caused the damage. I have been searching on the internet to try and provide an answer, but to a novice so many different species appear similar!
A friends thinks that they may be Ladybird larvae and if so I know they are beneficial and would not wish to treat them in any way.
