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.

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
