    Ladybugs are very cool – in small doses. I know some people who have had infestations of them and that is a little creepy. I have always liked ladybugs, it’s one of the only bugs I’ll let crawl on me. I just think they are dainty, sweet and smart.

  2. i love ladybirds too, but their babies are very interesting too because they look like little crocodiles!
