He was working in the garden and it landed on his hand as far as he can tell, perhaps it was disturbed somehow though

Some species of Lady Beetles exude a foul smelling yellowish liquid from their bodies when disturbed, probably to dissuade predators. Did your husband brush at it or try to pick it up to move it?
