Ladybug belongs to a family of small beetles ranging in color – they can be red, yellow or orange and most commonly have small black spots on their wing covers. As they are in essence beetles, and not true bugs, more correct names would be ladybird beetles or lady beetles. Ladybugs are small in size, ranging from few millimeters to about 1 cm in length. Some species feed on plants while others are predators and feed on aphids and scale insects, so they can be found near vegetation.
