Thanks! They sound more or less beneficial. Will go after aphids and so on.

Mine go after white fly. If you watch them for a few minutes, you can usually see what they're going after.

Any ideas on these eggs growing on a bean leaf? After a bit of googling I thought possibly crusader bug eggs?

Bender,

I was going to guess Stink Bug eggs. It looks like we are talking about something very similar (cousins?) :D

Have done some more research and apparently we don't have brown marmorated stink bugs in Australia. I think these are more likely to be brown shield bugs.

Are these caterpillar babies? Should I spray my plants with Dipel? They're all over my broccoli too... Very tiny (2mm)

If you're talking about the black spots, it's hard to tell but I think they are frass (excrement). Probably from the caterpillar.

That's a caterpillar and caterpillar poo all right! Pick off or squash as many as you can to keep ahead of them while you get the Dipel going.
