Ladybugs are a very useful group, also called ladybugs or ladybird beetles. Many insects, especially aphids and other sap are natural enemies. A single female insect can eat up to 5,000 aphids during its lifetime. Many species of female beetles are found in Kentucky and are common in most habitats. Adult female beetles have as many characteristic convex, semi spheres as oval shaped bodies, which can be yellow, pink, orange, red or black, and are often marked with different marks. This is the type of warning coloring used to say goodbye to other animals that can try to eat them. Like many brightly colored insects, an odorous, harmful liquid that seeps through their joints when disturbed protects insects. The bright body painting helps some hunters remember to meet and avoid attacking bugs with similar markings. Adult females often put the egg clusters around the leaves, scale or mealybug colonies.
Alligator-like larvae are also predators. They are bright and shiny, pointed and black. Despite their dangerous appearance, female insect larvae are quite harmless to humans. After feeding the insect food for a few weeks, the larvae are young in a leaf. When looking for more hunting while staying larval, adults tend to progress as the vernal spirals diminish. Some species of ladybug have a few generations each year, but others only have one. In the summer months, you can find all the stages at the same time. Adults of some species bring winter together in large groups under leaf scraps, rocks or other filth. Stork bugs can play an important role in the management of some insect pests in plant and landscape areas. Some things you can do to maximize your impact.

These are important components of some species’ diets. While there are many female beetles in Kentucky, a few are very common in agricultural areas, home gardens, landscape, and wooded areas. These include: Coleomegilla maculate, sometimes called pink spotted lady beetle, has a medium sized, rectangular pink to red body marked with black spots. Both adults and larvae are important aphid hunters, as well as mites, insect eggs and small horses. Unlike most female insects, the plant can produce 50% of the pollen diet. In Kentucky, there are two kinds of ladybugs that feed on extinct plants from insects. These are Mexican bean beetles and pumpkin beetles. Both are very easy to identify. Mexican bean beetle adults fed on garden beans and rarely soybeans, squash, squash, squash, squash, and squash are attacking orange corpses with eight black stains on each wing, only seven lekeyes.
