Re: It's not a great picture, but...

I get ladybirds (what you call ladybugs) at the beginning of the winter. They come inside to spend the winter -- they leave when the weather's warmer.

I found a ladybird in my wallet.

We usually get a rash of ladybugs Aug-Dec during an Indian Summer when it hits around 70. Never this late... early?


We have quite a problem with these around here.  They make nests in your home and if you don't catch them right away they get out of hand.  These are Japanese lady bugs, too, which are an invasive species.  I hate them. 

 

Oh, and they apparently woke up during that stretch of warmer weather we had a few weeks ago.  Did I say I hate them?  If not, I hate them.  Smiley Tongue

I don't mind ladybirds nor stinkbugs.  I don't pet them or anything, but they don't annoy me.

"Those darn lady bugs, though.  I'll be sitting there and all of a sudden my arm will start stinging, only to look down and see one of those buggers biting me."

 

@GabeU, so how do you feel about ladybirds, then? LOL

 

I have never been bitten by one unless I pick it up.

It was a little odd -- I thought there was something like a button there that I had never seen before, until the "button" took flight.  And yes, I'm sure it was going for the money.

It's not the weirdest thing I've found in my wallet. It once had a very weird beetle type thing in it, something I had never seen before. It took me a LONG time to find out what it was.  It was a wheel bug. VERY weird.

There's a rhyme you're supposed to recite to get the ladybird to go (maybe @GabeU could test to see if it works):

 

Ladybird, ladybird fly away home,Your house is on fire and your children shall burn!
