Ladybugs (aka, Ladybirds), are a favourite insect of children. Their distinctive spots and vibrant colour is a magnet for people of all ages.
From a gardener's point of view, I just love them! Not just because they're pretty, unlike a lot of other insects, but due to their voracious appetite.
Ladybugs will eat any Aphids who might otherwise ravage the plants in your garden.
So... Next time you see a Ladybug, don't forget to thank her!
