Ladybug fun facts...


All my little critters have been released into the wild... over 1500 of them.
I am hoping a few will stick around and take care of my rose bushes.
Ladybugs can eat up to 75 aphids in one day. 


Just like the horseshoe and the four leaf clover, the ladybug is considered to be good luck. 


A ladybug beats its wings up to 85 times per second when it flies.   
    

 Ladybugs will pretend to be dead and fall to the ground if threatened.


And.....
Did you know?

Ladybugs are the official state insect of Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Ohio and Tennessee.
States have official insects ????
