What is a natural predator for Harlequin Bugs?

I would like to know if blue tongue lizards eat harlequin bugs, as we now have a blue tongue lizard living in our garden, and have had a bad infestation of harlequin bugs, have been using confider near house but didn't want to use this on fruit trees and veges and recently since noticing the lizard the bug infestation doesn't seem as bad. Do you think the lizard would be eating the bugs Thanks Karen

Its hard to say if the blue tongue has developed a penchant for harlequin bugs. More than likely the bug population has lessened because of the pesticide usage which is registered for the control of this bug on ornamental plants only. (not edibles)
