Beetlemania: An Asian Ladybug on a Leaf

A 18-spot ladybug (possibly an Asian Ladybug) photographed on a limb of a cherry tree. Other aliases include the harlequin ladybird, pumpkin ladybird, multivariate ladybird. While it controls the spread of aphids, it has become a pest itself.

    • It won’t be me telling you that they’re pests! šŸ™‚ Ladybugs are beneficial insects and keep those pest-y aphids at bay. Never saw one actually fly before this one, though! šŸ™‚
