Lady bug



They come in many different colors and patterns, but the most familiar in North America is the seven-spotted ladybug, with its shiny, red-and-black body. In many cultures, ladybugs are considered good luck.


The natural habitat for ladybugs is areas of dense vegetation, such as forests, meadows, weed patches and gardens. Most ladybugs are especially fond of aphids and often live in areas where these plant-eaters are found, such as among roses, oleander, milkweed and broccoli patches.
