Caption: Fire bugs (Pyrrhocoridae sp.) swarming over a tree trunk. They are also known as cotton stainer bugs, because they are pests of cotton and related plants. The name fire bug comes from the bright red colours of some species. Swarms of pests like this can cause extensive crop damage. Photographed in Howick, South Africa.
