Milkweed Bugs Finds Hoyas!

Hoyas and Milkweeds both belong to the Apocynaceae Family and are very closely related.  When I opened my tent greenhouse yesterday, I was greeted by a number of these bugs on my plants.  Lets hope they don’t go after the Hoyas with the same gusto that they go after Milkweed!
