Asparagus plants are quite the investment of time taking up to 3 years for a harvest. If you are planning on growing asparagus, make sure to plan ahead and set aside a section of your garden just for this.
Asparagus beetles have a similar look to lady bugs. As larvae, they are 1/3 inch long and are slug like in appearance. Adult asparagus beetles are about 1/4 inch in length and are metallic blue-black with either yellow or black spots on their wings. Both adult and larvae can be dangerous to your asparagus causing the tips to turn brown and twist.
