Ladybug Larvae, The best girlfriend you can have!............Sorry honey!

I just wanted to post a picture of a ladybug larvae.If you find one of these,make sure to put it back into your bin.They will eat fungus gnat and other larvae.I don,t have an answer rather or not if they would eat a baby worm.I doubt it but just don't know.I find these in my out door bins.The first one i ever found,i was glad i did my research before i killed it.I have found severail at one time on the inside walls of my worm tent.These beneficial bugs are welcome in my bin any time.Heck,if you have a way to screen over your bin and have a bad gnat or fruitfly problem,put in a few adults.Just make sure even if you find these on your plants to let them be.They are only eating aphids.Ladybugs are my favorite bug.True ladies!

I had no idea that they looked like that! Why do you suppose that bug in their larval form look so much different than adults?

I can't even figure out how something that long,turns into something that round.At least they have dots.The first one i found,i wasn't even sure if it would bite or sting me.

I would have thought the same thing!

Now that brings back memories from when I was a kid, ones that I had completely forgot about. We used to get them all the time, kinda look like they could be a bad bug. My grandma's garden were full of the lil' BUG'ers and she told me what it was.

If I saw one in the garden yesterday I probably wouldn't remember, but now thanks Larry for the memory and the re-education!
