May 3, 2023

I am an adult Asian Lady Beetle
I was introduced in America both accidentally and on purpose
I was released to control arthropod pests,
And I am happy to be of service.

In winter they migrate northward
And gather by the thousands - it's annual occurrence
Which can really bug entomophobics 
Who are terrified by the disturbance!
