Congregation of Ladybugs

Hippodamus convergens

Description:

Swarms of colorful ladybugs are a common sight on Mount Diablo in the late winter as they keep themselves busy eating, mating and laying eggs. “Ladybug” is a misnomer, as these friendly little insects are actually beetles that are deadly to garden pests

Habitat:

Mount Diablo State Park
