1.         Ladybugs are a type of beetle. They have 6 short legs, 2 antennae, their top flying speed is about 15 miles per hour, they hibernate in winter, they let out a yellowish bad smelling liquid when they are mad. (See websites for more info).  
2.         The female will lay 3-20 football-shaped orange eggs in a circular cluster on the underside of leaves. Eggs are not visible to the naked eye. In 2-5 days the eggs turn into larva and consume up to 400 aphids in 21 days. They next turn into a pupa. After 2-5 days the adults come out and continue to eat. Adult ladybugs eat during the day and will consume over 5000 aphids each. 
3.         There are over 450 species in North America. Some are black or vary from reddish-orange to pale yellow. The most common in the US is the Convergent Lady Beetle, which is orange with black spots and the number of spots varies per species. There are 5 states in the U.S. that have the Ladybug as the state insect.
4.       God shared the ladybug with us, now we can share the ladybug with someone else.
5.       The ladybug was created on the 6th day.
