J-Thank you so much!! This one didn't bite me but ones we had back in the Twin Cities did. I had swarms of them on a tree one day in my back yard. Kind of ironic that their first name is Harmonia, eh? "-)

I believe this is an Asian Ladybug (Harmonia axyridis) due to the "W" shape on the white part of its head. They are very invasive in these parts, and have decimated the native ladybug population.
