Its aphid-eating prowess makes it one of my favourites in the garden. I get excited whenever they show up!
I have never seen those. or maybe I did and didn’t pay attention because I didn’t know what they were. So cute! So small! I will be on the look-out for some here, too.
Thank you for solving my mystery! I found a bunch of these on my plants a month or so ago, and had no clue what they were. I tried finding them online to identify them, but got too creeped out looking at a million pictures of bugs. I guessed some sort of beetle…boy was I wrong! Maybe these little guys are why I finally seem to be winning my battle against the aphids. They’re pretty ugly in person, so I’m shocked they grow into lady bugs. Thank you so much for posting this!!
