Mystery bug

Need some assistance with this one. Whilst preparing the ground for my transplanted carrots, I came across this little fella. He was very bright as you can see and about 5mm across. Can anyone help me identify him and more importantly tell me if friend or foe?

Thanks for reading. :)


  1. Well I would say Red Spider Mite, but not if he's 5mm in length. So I'd have to go with Red Velvet Mite.
    In this case, neither Friend or Foe.
