Identify This Insect


romelgarden added on November 16, 2015 | Answered

I live in the tropics right near to the equator. I trimmed my mint plant, as it was becoming too woody. A couple of weeks later, the plant became infested with these. I cannot identify them. The mint was in a five gallon container with wood chips, rocks and good drainage. Any help on identification and control of this insect will be appreciated.
