Late Season Ladybug Sightings

It's been slim pickins' lately trying to come up with some content to entertain you folks , sorry about that. I've basically just been raking leaves, making mulch, smothering some grass, and helping my parents move. There's just not a lot happening outside right now, but I've got something exciting I'm working on, more details later.


The unseasonably warm weather has continued and we've been seeing a lot of insects that should be asleep by now. These two Ladybugs showed themselves over the weekend. I've also seen a few Leaf Footed Bugs, Wheelbugs, and Earwigs. Stink Bugs too, but they don't count, they're always around.

  2. Oooooo, your hand looks kinda ashy! Maybe a nice hand cream would be in order.

  4. Thanks Ellen!
    I've only seen a black lady beetle once before, and I've finally identified it thanks to my Kaufman bug guide, it's called an Ashy Gray Lady Beetle. Yes, even though it's black! (There are 2 color forms) Purely a coincidence that my hands were "ashy" too, what can I say, I'm a worker bee not a queen!

  6. Yeah, he's like that. However, it's not like she didn't point out how ashy my legs were earlier this week just before I headed out for a run.
