Insect recognition

One insect has got horizontal orange stripes and the other has 2 vertical stripes.  I seem to have rather a lot on my plants, particularly geums.  

What are they please and do I need to worry about them?

  • Ladybird larva, ladybird pupa. They have been scoffing your aphids, so welcome them!

    Lucky you! Treasure them.

  • That's brilliant.  Thank you all.
