More Cool Ladybug Facts - and Ladybug Shop Info

Cool Ladybug Facts
The “lady” in ladybug refers to the Virgin Mary.
Legend has it that crops in Europe during the Middle Ages ere plagued by pests, so the farmers began praying to the Blessed Lady, the Virgin Mary. Soon the farmers started seeing ladybugs in their fields, and the crops were miraculously saved from the pests. They associated their good fortune with the black and red beetles, and so began calling them ladybug beetles. In Germany, these insects go by the name Marienkafer, which means Mary beetles.
Ladybug bleed from their knees when threatened.
A ladybug’s hemolymph is both toxic and rank. Startle a ladybug, and the foul-smelling fluid will seep from its leg joints, leaving yellow stains on the surface below. Potential predators may be deterred by the vile mix of alkaloids, and equally repulsed by the sight of a seemingly sickly beetle. Ladybug larvae can ooze from their abdomens.
