Fun fact! Ladybugs may be the stars of nursery rhymes and children’s stories but they are also voracious predators, devouring a wide variety of insects and their eggs, including other species of beetle. In fact a single ladybug can consume over 5,000 aphids and other soft-bodied insects during their lifetime! Here a new generation of ladybug larvae emerges to do battle against pests!

Thank you, vivianpoma! I was really lucky to find them at that exact moment when they were in the different stages of hatching.
