Spotting

Description:

Orange-red with black dots and an eggshell white section between head and body.

Habitat:

In the middle of November we still have ladybugs in the Netherlands. Not only has there been a significant increase of them this year (I counted around 30 this year that I found in our apartment alone during the summer), but they also seem not to be affected by the weather getting colder.

Notes:

This year they come in red or orange-red with black spots or in black with red spots. I have also seen a yellow one with black spots. amount of spots varies greatly.
