Fun facts about ladybugs
Before we get into the crafts, let’s learn a couple of interesting facts about these tiny winged creatures:
Did you know that ladybugs are actually beetles, not bugs? That is why they are also known as lady beetles or ladybirds.
They come in a bunch of colors, not just the classic red with black dots. They can be yellow, orange, or even pink! Plus, some have stripes instead of spots.
When threatened, ladybugs can play dead. They will also secrete a stinky yellow liquid that can keep predators away. So don’t scare them or you may not like the results!
They are garden helpers. How? One ladybug can eat up to 5000 insects in its lifetime! This helps keep them from eating your garden plants.
If you ever come across a ladybug, make a wish! Legend has it that spotting a ladybug brings good luck.
If they live in a cold winter area, ladybugs will have season-long slumber parties! They will group together to keep warm and hibernate.
So, next time you see a ladybug, don’t scare it, make sure to thank it for taking care of your garden and don’t forget to make a wish! If you’re interested, here are more facts about ladybugs.
