Did you know there are different types of ladybugs?
Different kinds of ladybugs have a different number of spots on their wings when they are closed. The ladybug above is a Seven-spotted Ladybug Beetle. It is found in New Jersey and is spreading across the Northeast.
This is a Convergent Ladybug Beetle. They have 13 or more spots. This one has 19.
Convergent Ladybug Beetles are found in woods, meadows, and gardens all across the country.
Here is a picture of him dancing.
In England they are called Ladybird Beetles.
In Germany they are called Mary Bugs.
They are named after Mary, “Our Lady”.
I like ladybugs because they do not bite.
Boy ladybugs are also called ladybugs.
I think this is not fair. They should have a different name.
Do you think this makes them mad?
