These bugs are all over my Milkweed plants . . . what are they ? I don’t want to kill them if they are a good bug.

    I hate those things… Milkweed bugs… they eat the seeds. Less of a problem for you with your tropical milkweeds…. But when the matelea and butterflyweed seem to produce so few seeds, and I want to plant them to expand the monarch patch… those nasty milkweed bugs are a pain… And they reproduce like crazy… like squash bugs… or leaf foot bugs… I knock them into a container with an inch or two of water in the bottom.
