Lady Bugs’ Intricate Life

Intricate

Lady bugs weave an intricate trail on this tree.
Lady-Bugs-LifeThese lady bugs, (actually Asian Lady beetles) swarm at the river’s edge on the sandbags we use for our windsurf launch.

Why do lady bugs swarm? Read more about it here. Remember, these beetles are beneficial and eat aphids and other hateful bugs that plague our gardens.

  1. Lady bugs are so cute! I’ve never seen so many at one time in person until I lived in the mountains of Virginia. We lived deep in the woods, so lady bugs came out in droves like your photo above.

    Thanks for sharing your photos at Inspire Me Monday!

  2. When ladybugs come to your yard there is a mixed blessing. Ladybugs are beneficial but then it also means you probably have aphids on your plants. I wonder…are they all “ladies”? What do the male asian beetles look like? LOL (I’m serious)

    1. Hi Lia, thank you for all your comments! This is one insect swarm that doesn’t freak me out. Somewhere I have some bee swarm photos. Happy Wednesday and hope you get a respite from your busy work week 🙂

      1. Yes, these little critters don’t scare me at all!
        Oh a bee swarm photo? Hmm, very interesting and a bit scarier!
        Thanks, things are starting to slow down and I’m catching up on reading blogs 🙂 Something I love to do!

  4. I’ve never seen so many ladybugs! I don’t know what it is about them that makes them so sweet, I am not a fan of creepy crawlies, but I’d happily pick one of these up and watch it wonder across my hand!

  6. Beautiful pictures. We call them lady birds in the UK. Somehow, they don’t seem as creepy-crawly as other insects.

  7. Great pics Terri! I took some shots last year of a swarm of lady bugs and they were an amazing sight. We call them ladybirds here – just an interesting fact I thought I’d share with you 🙂
