Ladybug fun facts
Ladybugs are interesting insects: In its adult lifetime, each ladybug may eat up to 5,000 aphids!
Their spots aren’t just for fun – they warn that ladybugs aren’t a great snack.
If this first line of defense doesn’t work, ladybugs also play dead to fool predators!
Their iconic red shells do not actually serve as wings – the shell, called the elytra, opens to reveal wings hidden underneath!
