Coccinellidae is a family of beetles, known variously as ladybirds (UK, Ireland, Australia, Pakistan, South Africa, New Zealand, India, Malta, some parts of Canada and the US), or ladybugs (North America).
A few species of ladybug are considered pests in North America and Europe, but they are generally considered useful insects as many species feed on aphids or scale insects, which are pests in gardens, agricultural fields, orchards, and similar places. Ladybugs also require a source of pollen for food and are attracted to specific types of plants. The presence of ladybugs in grape harvests can cause ladybird taint in wines produced from the grapes. In Christian areas, ladybirds are also often associated with the Virgin Mary and the name that the insect bears in the various languages of Europe corresponds to this. If ladybugs have become a problem in your home or yard contact Johnson Pest Control at 865-453-7587, for more information on ladybug treatment & control options.
Scientists increasingly prefer the names ladybird beetles or lady beetles as these insects are neither birds nor true bugs.


Harmonia axyridis (or the Harlequin ladybug) was introduced into North America from Asia in 1988 to control aphids but is now the most common species as it is out-competing many of the native species. Mary (Our Lady) was often depicted wearing a red cloak in early paintings and the spots of the seven spot ladybird (the most common in Europe) were said to symbolise her seven joys and seven sorrows.
As in many insects, ladybugs in temperate regions enter diapause during the winter, so they often are among the first insects to appear in the spring. In Finnish, the ladybird is, for its blood red color, called leppakerttu, translating to Blood Gertrud from the ancient Baltic-Finnic meaning blood or the word leppa (that means alder in modern Finnish).
While predatory species are often used as biological control agents, introduced species of ladybirds (such as Harmonia axyridis or Coccinella septempunctata in North America) outcompete and displace native coccinellids and become pests in their own right.
Other plants that also attract ladybugs include coreopsis, cosmos (especially the white ones), dandelions and scented geraniums.
In many countries, including Russia, Turkey, and Italy, the sight of a ladybug is either a call to make a wish or a sign that a wish will soon be granted.


Ladybugs, as well as other Coccinellids are known to spray a toxin that is venomous to certain mammals and other insects when threatened. Predatory ladybugs are usually found on plants where aphids or scale insects are, and they lay their eggs near their prey, to increase the likelihood the larvae will find the prey easily.
Swarms of ladybugs fly to buildings in September through November depending on location and weather conditions.
