I had scores of them one year. They will destroy your plant if you have enough of them.If they weren't so pretty, would you be more inclined to squish them?
Would you kill fleas or clothes moths?

I think you're right @B3. They're very eye catching.
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
I don't doubt I've probably accidently killed ants and other things by stepping on them, and I've stepped on a few snails to my horror!
When I was about 8 I tried to save an injured spider, put it in a jar and gave it some water (thinking it might need a drink), but accidentally drowned it😢 I was in tears😂
