BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR THE HARLEQUIN BUG
Yesterday, I found a small orange bug with blackspots on my Kale. It has left wholes in the Kale and some leaves have turned dry and brown.After researching the pest, I found it to be a Harlequin bug. These bugs are about a 1/2 inch long and love to suck the juices out of cabbage plants, kale, brocolli etc. The leaves will turn brown and the plant will eventually die. They will also attack other vegetable plants, when nothing else is available. The best way to control them is by handpicking them and squishing them.
