Hi all.
I have had dozens if not hundreds of cucumber beetles decimating my cucurbits over the last month or so. i managed a good crop of cucumbers but have now ripped out the plants to start over again. The bug in the photo looks a bit like a lady beetle but is bigger and has 2 antenna about half inch long (can be seen in photo if u look close). Is This friend or foe?

Cheers...Paul
