part of the website is aimed at younger people
and children. You will find out lots of interesting
facts about ladybirds, and activities you
can do to learn more about them.
A few species feed on plants or mildew
but most ladybirds eat aphids (greenfly)
or scale insects. Both are garden pests
and this is why so many people love to
see ladybirds. The seven-spot ladybird
can eat 5000 aphids during its year long
No. The number of spots
does not relate to age at all!

You can have a go at designing your very own ladybird. Just print out this simple ladybird shape (PDF format), and let your imagination do the rest!
