I have these little insects in my garden I have never seen before, can anyone identity? Please see the picture and advice if you know more. Many thanks




The insects in the middle of the picture are ladybird larvae. Hopefully they are feeding on your scale insects so don't do anything nasty to them!

Thank you so much for your quick answer, you have been very helpful! I will just let them do their job and hope for the best!

They are commonly mistaken for garden pests and are disposed of, by gardeners, not realising whjat they reall are.
