Ladybugs are small round beetles with a round body, shaped like half a pea. Often they are bright red or yellow, with blk, red, white, or yellow spots. Ladybugs feed chiefly on aphids and scale insects. For this reason, fruit-growers and nurserymen find that the ladybugs are helpful. Ladybugs are in the order, Coleoptera, and make up the family Coccinellidae.
