Artist's Description

Well the other morning when I went into our laundry room…I found these ’lil guys/gals hanging out up on the trim around the room. They are all just huddled there together. :o) Of course, I saw a photo-op….Ladybugs are so pretty!!

Here are some neat facts about ladybugs.

  • When Mating…The male grips the female from behind and holds on tight. They can copulate (stay together) for more than 2 hours at a time. Female ladybugs can store a male’s sperm for 2-3 months before laying eggs.
  • There are nearly 5,000 different kinds of ladybugs worldwide and 400 which live in North America.
  • A female ladybug will lay more than 1000 eggs in her lifetime.
  • A ladybug beats its wings 85 times a second when it flies.
  • Aphids are a ladybug’s favorite food.
  • Ladybugs chew from side to side and not up and down like people do.
  • A gallon jar will hold from 72,000 to 80,000 ladybugs.
  • Ladybugs make a chemical that smells and tastes terrible so that birds and other predators won’t eat them.
  • If you squeeze a ladybug it will bite you, but the bite won’t hurt.
  • The spots on a ladybug fade as the ladybug gets older.
  • During hibernation, ladybugs feed on their stored fat.
  • Ladybugs won’t fly if the temperature is below 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • The ladybug is the official state insect of Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Ohio, and Tennessee.
  • The male ladybug is usually smaller than the female.
  • The Asian Lady Beetle can live up to 2-3 years if the conditions are right.
