Saw a bug in my garden today that I have never seen before. Anyone know what it is? It was about an inch long. Those are not its eyes. I think it is just Mother Nature making it look scary.

Thank you Kurt. Looks like I don't need to be worried about it in my gardens. Especially since I obviously don't have a lot of them. It's always interesting to find something new. Thank You!

Train branches to open spots, tie if necessary with garden tape.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

Welcome! Knarum

It could be a current (Ribes) of some kind. Are you growing it as an ornamental or for fruit? If it's as an ornamental I would cut the longer branches back to the level of the lower leafed ones and make it start over. If it's for fruit then it may need a different approach.
