A pretty sight before winter sets in. :) Staten Island, N.Y., Zone 7b
Found a Ladybug in one of my gardens today!!!! :)
I have hardly seen any ladybug's this year, I think it has been too cold / wet, these little bugs are the gardeners friends as they eat green / black flies like there's no tomorrow's, they lay there eggs in among our plants (usually under the leaves, the pupa hatches out into funny little black or dark crawling bugs before they mature into the lovely ladybugs we know as red spotted little bugs, the immature black bugs that can eat thousands of greenfly a day so never kill them as they really do a great jog of cleaning our plants of problems.
I envy you, good luck. WeeNel.
I found 2 today, also. 1 buried in a sedum and another among some leaves
Means you may have aphids, they are Ladybugs? Not that 1 spot bad imitator?
The Asian ones congregate around doors and windows to try to get in the house for the winter, I don't have that problem here
Ahhh, Asian - couldn't remember the names- thanx flowjen- I just left NJ last week- aroun Mt Holly area this time
My brother used to live in Mt Holly, my neighbor's son lives there
What a small world
