Can anyone help me to identify this bug?
It's what I would call a "Shield Bug", but A) I'm pretty sure that is not its proper name, and B) I want to know if it is good to have such things in my garden or not.
It was crawling about (sluggishly, obviously feeling the cold) on the wall of my house, next to the Blueberry plants.
Will it eat the Blueberries? Will it lay eggs on them that will produce larvae that will eat the Blueberries, or will it just eat the aphids on the nearby rose bushes? Answers on a postcard (aka Comment) please...
The allegiance of this one is less in doubt. My No.1 enemy...the Fox.
