Hi all.

I have the following tree in my garden:
http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fichier:Gardenia_volkensii_subs...
http://www.plantzafrica.com/plantefg/gardeniavolk.htm

It is indigenous to South Africa and have now seen these insects on it. The insects started at about 8mm in size and all are now about 3cm - 5cm in size and the complete bush/tree is full of them.

Can anyone tell me what they are?
Are they good or bad for the tree?
Are they indigenous to South Africa?
Should I get rid of them?

Thanks
