Now that's Camouflage!

I thought this was kind of cool! I almost stepped on this little guy, and had to do a double take when I saw him!

Pretty lucky to survive the winter. Wouldn't want to get stepped on now.

I saw my first ladybug of the spring a couple days ago. Outside, I mean. Maybe it was on the way out from inside.

Ahhh, so you know the indoor beetles too? We had an old farm house where we lived before, and they just walked right in any old crack they could find. We thought we'd be getting away from that here in this house..........nope, we still have them here and there. Not so bad as before. Terrible little pests they are!

I'm always on the look out for natures art Merry! It's the simple things that I really enjoy, and find beautiful! I'm sure they'll be more that I'll be sharing down the road as things warm up, and summer finally gets here!

I love lady bugs! They're the good guys in the garden! And they're cute.

I take it you've never had to deal with them in the house? They will crawl anywhere and everywhere! Ewww!

I think ladybugs are cute, too. But the little brown spots they can leave behind aren't so cute. I prefer they stay outside.

I put them outside when they come in. They eat aphids from my roses. That's why I like them....(and they're cute!) One year I couldn't keep up with them in the house, but I wouldn't kill one...on purpose. I put them outside and told them to go hibernate.

I never kill ladybugs, although I must admit I've never had to deal with hundreds of them in my house either. The few that manage to come in I just let be for their winter hibernation. They do no harm [I've read] and I've yet to notice any, hmmm, little brown "spots" anywhere either. They're wonderfull for the garden and some farmers even 'import' them for their fields [I've read].

My neighbor told me the orther day that hundreds of them hibernate in his birdhouses during the winter. I've even seen 'ladybug houses' for sale at the Meijers store.

All my ladybugs seem to be the Asian variety [more golden orangey with various spottings and some have no spots at all]. Question: whatever happened to all the red American type beetles? They've just seemed to have all disappeared [in my neck of the woods anyway]! Anyone know???
