ABSTRACT
Ladybug, or Ladybird, a small beetle. Members of most species, both as larvae and as adults, feed on garden pests such as aphids, scale insects, and mealybugs. Ladybugs live in temperate and warmer parts of the world. Most are brightly colored, with spotted, dome-shaped bodies 1/16 to 3/8 of an inch (2 to 10 mm) long. They are commonly red, yellow, or orange and spotted with black, white, or yellow. Many species hibernate in winter.
