Ladybugs are beetles.
They eat aphids and mites, too.
They are red and spotted.
I love ladybugs, don't you?

Bonus activity: Inform children that ladybugs are a gardener's friend, as they devour 
the aphids and spider mites that destroy a gardener's plants. Some gardeners even 
purchase ladybugs from home and garden centers to sprinkle on their plants!

    Another week has come and gone and I haven't been able to read as much this week as I had wanted. I am glad I was able to read your poetry today Cerie. Keep your pen scrolling don't let the ink dry up. I hope you have a wonderful weekend of sunshine and joy and find lots of inspiration along the way. Love, Carol

    Ladybugs are such cute critters! I would count their spots when I was little. Children will enjoy this write as much as I just did. Your stripe bug, Qui Bee.

    They are a pain when they move in your house, car, or barn for the winter.
