    I seen that my plant was slowly deteriorating...and i thought it was just the sun cause it has been very hot lately...but i look closer and there are at least a hundred little catipilar/magget like things eating it all up!! now a week earlier i spotted these tiny bettles about the size of a lady bug mating on the chinese lantern plant and i think that is where they are comming from..they are yellowish brown with black stripes i have a picture of them....can some one help me get rid of these things before they kill my plant please? Here is a picture, you have to look very closely to see them... I will try to get a picture of the catipilar things also. Thank you!
