Ladybugs

Ladybugs are beetles that range from .8-18mm in length. While we most closely associate ladybugs with their red wings with black spots, they can also be found in yellow and orange. While ladybugs are not generally considered pests, it still is important to be able to identify them should they inhabit your home or garden.
