Why are Ladybugs so Lucky?

Why are Ladybugs so Lucky?

The Luck of the Ladybug is known all across the world. But what is so lucky about a ladybug? Many cultures believe the sight of a ladybug means future luck in love, good weather, a financial windfall or the granting of wishes. Having a ladybug land on you is supposedly to be particularly lucky.

Folklore suggests if you catch a Ladybug in your home, count the number of spots and that's how many dollars you'll soon find.
More than likely ladybugs were thought to be of good luck because of their usefulness in gardening and farming."Twice the Luck"
