Lady beetles, ladybugs, or ladybird beetles are among the most visible and best known beneficial predatory insects. Over 450 species are found in North America. Some are native and some have been introduced from other countries. Most lady beetles in North America are beneficial as both adults and larvae, feeding primarily on aphids.
Lady beetles, also commonly called “ladybugs” or “ladybird beetles”, are considered predators of other small soft-bodied insects. Adult beetles can vary in coloration and pattern of spots, depending on the species.
Ladybugs (also called ladybirds and lady beetles) are a type of beetle that usually have a red, oval-shaped body with black spots. The most common color of ladybugs is red but some types of ladybugs have yellow, orange, grey, or even pink body.
We pretty much know the term ladybird came first. The Oxford English Dictionary as the citations for ladybird dating back to 1674, and for the Ladybug from 1699. According to Etymonline, there’s also an entry for Lady-bird dating back to the 1590s, meaning ‘sweetheart‘, a term of endearment, from lady + bird. As for the name of a type of beetle, that’s recorded as being named from the 1670s, which of course is the earlier form of the word Ladybug.
The best way to handle a ladybird beetle invasion is to prevent it from happening in the first place. These beetles can get in through cracks as small as 1⁄8-inch, so seal any gaps around window frames, doors and where pipes enter the wall. Make sure there is proper insect screening in windows and doors. Install door sweeps on all entry doors.
