What is this black and yellow insect on my lemons?

It has 6 legs, 2 antenna, black square dots around the lemon part of the body.

Hi Jenny,

It looks like the nymph from the spined citrus bug, they would normally damage the fruit. You can control them by using Yates Pyrethrum Insect Pest Killer Concentrate which is a contact spray.
