CLOSED: Orange squishy bug on hibiscus

Palm Coast, FL

These bugs are turning up all over my hibiscus plant leaves. The are about 1/4" long. anyone know what it is and how to treat it?

the picture isn't really clear enough for me to know for certain, but i would say it's a late stage lady beetle (right before it becomes an adult). they eat all the bad bugs.

Thanks! Here is a more "zoomed in" version of the pic...... Do you still think the same????

Definitely appears to be a lady beetle pupa.

you're lucky to have them, especially on Hibiscus (which are so prone to insect infestation).
