Observed: 17th June 2013 By: Sarah Seddon

Found this on my hand after handling new plants i bought 2 days ago .
Can anyone tell me if its friend or foe ?
It was on Argyranthemum plants but as they been in garden 2 days may have come from garden not plants . Cant find any more on plant .

friend or foe

I think these are fairly neutral - they are potentially feeding on your garden plants, but don't normally produce any long-term damage as far as I am aware. See:
