Ok, so I realize I've been posting a lot of pictures of creepy little bugs, but my pepper plants just introduce me to a lot of weird looking stuff that I think is interesting. And really, this isn't that weird. Remember all those lady bugs doin' it on my plants on 6-22-11? Well I guess it worked, because their eggs hatched, and now I have lady bug larvae on my plants! This is a good thing because they eat tons of aphids (aphids are bad for my peppers). I think it's cool watching entire life cycles happen on the leaves of my plants over time. After larvae hatch from eggs, they'll run around and eat a ton of aphids, then make a little pupa shell. Then the pupa hatches as a full adult lady bug to start the cycle all over again.
