Hi Bulba ..
Thanks ...
I've googled and think I've found it now ..

Kidney Spot Ladybird and larvae ..

.. supposed to be quite rare, but there are thousands on my euonymus ..

Euonymus is looking sad, so I'm going to prune it short.

Are the white things bugs as well.......

Hi Pam
Yes... I think so ... maybe aphids ..
I guess the big ones are eating the smaller white ones ..

Oh well a natural result then Terra......looks as if you could get some very fat ladybirds?

Ladybird grubs are brilliant for eating aphids - it's their meal of choice!

The grubs look all black till seen enlarged on a photo, when their paler bodies are more visible.

The white things are the shed bodies of aphids. The problem with the shrub is the number of aphids on it not the ladybirds. Trouble is to deal with the aphids you run the risk of damaging the ladybirds.

Thanks, Owdboggy ..
that's interesting ...
Over the autumn I shall cut back this fairly large euonymus a bit at a time, to very low, so hopefully it will sprout again next year with less aphids !
