Found My First Three Lined Potato Beetle

*Edit* At first I thought this was a three-lined cucumber's not. It is a Three Lined Potato Beetle.

I found this guy munching on one of my Peppers earlier this week:

He died.

Edit June 30: I Stand Corrected - Three-Lined Potato Beetle - NOT Cucumber Beetle

I have added a new feature to the sidebar that leads to an album of all the visitors to GrafixMuse's Garden spot that I catch on camera...the good, the bad, and the ugly.


  1. That's the first striped cucumber beetle I've seen this year. Good job! I'll have to check out your album of other pests...

  2. EG, I hope this is not a sign of things to come.

  3. I like your bug photo should label them as good or bad so we know what to watch for! It's a good idea!
    I assume that beetle met your foot! ;)

  4. Great idea Shawn Ann! I will go though and label them as good or bad. Thanks :)

  5. I haven't seen a striped one yet, but those spotted ones sure do love our garden.
