I knew that rape seed crop caused me terrible allergy but to find it is also responsable for these horrid little beetles is the last straw, as for some years now it has been grown in fields where I live.

Thank you for this article! These beetles appeared in my squash and courgette flowers this year, and I had no idea what they were. Great to know that they aren't particularly damaging.

so relieved these don't cause a problem they seem to be in every single daffodil I have in my garden and my magnolia tree, never seen them before so I guess the rape fields must be high this year.
Thank you

We have absolutely plagues of them and I'm afraid to say they do a lot of damage in my garden. They strip my daffodil petals bare and tend to eat the petals on petunias and other colourful flowers.

I'm glad i've found out what these pests are. I have been plagued with them for the past two weeks, and could do nothing but watch them munch their way through the flowers on my dahlias, roses and runner beans. And they love the bright yellow evening primrose! They have also been attracted to my washing!Weather has now deteriorated a bit (Gt Yarmouth area) so maybe there will be less pollen beetles about. Thanks for information.

Ah so that's what they are. I thought they were tiny weevils. They have some how gotten into my green house and covered my pumpkin flowers.
