Apple Dimpling Bug

Apple dimpling bug (Campylomma liebknechti) is also known as the yellow mirid. ADB adults (about 3mm long) are about one third the size of green mirid adults.  They are yellow-green, have dark spines on the legs and hairy wings that are folded flat on the back. Apple dimpling bugs are capable of moving quickly and have a distinctive apple smell when squashed. It is an important pest of apples and is known to damage small squares early in squaring on cotton but it is generally regarded more as a predator of helicoverpa eggs and mites than a pest.
