ACK they are horrifying! I was terrified of lady bugs before, this is the first time i've seen pictures of a larvae, they are 1000000000 times scarier than the adults!

:sob:

They're especially not cute if you're an aphid :)

btw, I think they're nymphs, not larva although I'm not 100% Cute nontheless!

i thought you may have been right, but i checked around and they're typically referred to as larvae, even by the University of Maine Extension...

Are we talking about the same kind of ladybugs I'm familiar with? The ones that are orange/red, sometimes with spots?
