We're all familiar with the shiny, orange, black-spotted ladybug (lady beetle, actually), but these beneficial insects come in other colors as well. One is orange to bright red with few or no markings, one is gray to pale yellow with black markings, and there is also a solid, shiny black one. Unlike some other beneficial insects, even the larva eats the bad bugs. In addition to their noted taste for aphids, they also prey on some mites, scales, mealybugs, and other soft-bodied insects. The adults hibernate in garden litter. In the West, they migrate in fall to hibernate in the mountains.
