Green Shieldbug hatchlings

We had eggs laid on a curtain which hatched today.

I released them outside as soon as we saw they'd hatched, was it the right thing?

They didn't take long to emerge.

Not sure how long they were there before we found them though, any idea of the usual period?

No, I don't know. I brought some in once (not knowing what they were) but most of them hatched into tiny wasps.

Can't see any harm releasing them now. Plenty of adults around at the moment which will be laying eggs outside & hatching. Put them somewhere sheltered.
