Glad. to see the warning and excellent photos showing the different stages. The early nymph stage where the bug is mostly reddish, can trick people into thinking they have lots of lady bug beetles. By the time the adult stage (frequently in mating, which makes the bugs look large and hour glass shape)is abundant, the plant is lost and the bugs have moved to other non-Brassica plants such as eggplant, peppers. Community gardens need to be alerted also.
