Notes:

These insects are devouring my Rose of Sharon. I would like to know what they are, and if they are harmful, or will just strip the leaves and flower seeds. They start out with red bodies with tiny white stripes. As they mature, they develop the black wing type structure. I live in South Georgia and have not seen these previously. Thank you.

    Might be box elder bugs… Or might be red shouldered bugs. I found several attempts to explain the difference, but they still look like the same critter to me… https://utextension.tennessee.edu/publications/documents/SP341-H.pdf
