Since I can NOT get into the Garden Foes forum (???) I am asking this here. I was going to spray the aphids off my milkweed but see these little guys. Nothing is ever there unless it's eating the aphids, so I am assuming it's a hoverfly larve. I've slept since last year and forgot what they looked like.
CLOSED: Hoverfly larvae?
Don't get rid of those, they are ladybugs larvae.

Nope, ladybug larvae are black and red. Thanks tho! I know what they look like, but unfortunately haven't seen any in about a month. These are tiny little sluglike looking caterpillar thingies. lol I am 99% sure they are hoverfly larvae. I have them every year on my Swamp milkweed. I do now, but the ones on the milkweed aren't as green. Maybe I'll try posting on the Garden Foes forum again to see if Night_Bloom can confirm.
