Milkweed bug. Not harmful at all. Many other insects use milkweed as a host plant besides monarch. Love them all! :)

5. Save and sow milkweed seed. In fall your pollinated milkweeds should have lots of fluffy seeds. (The silk down that the seeds are attached to makes a nice pillow fill and was spun into parachutes during World War II.)Seeds commonly need 30 to 60 days of cold, wet weather to germinate in spring. Sowing them outdoors in fall on top of loose soil is an easy way to ensure seedlings, and growing your own plants is cheap and environmentally friendly.
