Ladybugs are beautiful, non-offensive bugs. They do no harms to humans, but definitely benefit the crops as they eat aphids. They are not native to the United States, but were introduced to try and control pests on crops. The Chinese believe them to represent
good luck. But today, in Wisconsin, they are like the plague of locust. They are absolutely everywhere. We can't seem to walk for fear of stepping on one. Anytime one of us opens the door, a bunch of them come in. I guess if we believe like the Chinese we are overflowing with luck.
