    I don’t know but I think you should nip in quick and edit your title so you don’t give out your email address.

    @Daniel Haynes should be able to help with editing out your email.

    Looks to me like your beetle is one of these, in which case I assume you are in the USA - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chilocorus_stigma 

    Friend, not foe so leave well alone.  It eats aphids.  If you're not in the USA but are in the UK you need to tell the RHS as they like to know about new insects arrivals and maybe DEFRA as it will have come in on imported plants or fruits that should have had a phytosanitary inspection and certificate.

    I’ve asked the Mods to help with removing your email address. 

    Your insect is a one of the many varieties of ladybirds ... possibly a Harlequin but there are many varieties of those too ... fortunately they all eat aphids and are very welcome in our gardens. 🐞🤗

    Lots of pics here
