Toxic bugs on a toxic plant!
They're aggregating on Stinging nettle ehh? In July? Random question but, was the plant blossoming at the time?

A few years ago we had a massive ladybug invasion here in northern Germany, mainly on the coastlines - they came over the water in masses. Tourism stood still for quite a week and longer (impossible to eat or sun outside).

That particular year they flooded her house in October. We usually don't see them until the fall. I don't grow food - just flowers :)

Do they come in at certain times... like fall or winter? There are places where ladybug populations have crashed, so you are lucky... especially if you grow food.

Living in Southeastern Ohio, we usually get an overabundance of these "little ladies"...a few years back my sister had them inside her farm house so bad they had completely covered her windows! I consider them a nuisance! Nice to look at......but hard to keep outside where they belong!
