They love the aphids that eat up your plants!

Lady bugs eat aphids, that's why they are good for your garden.
The ladybug is different than the chinese beetle which looks very similar, a slight more orange to the LB. The CB bites and stinks when you pick it up, crush it, etc. I try to capture both in the vacuum and move them outdoors to the gardens. The CB was brought to the US for aiding in the crops infestation from other pests from other countries. Their eggs sit on freight to be sent, hatch out when they get here.
I took honey ground brown sugar raisins and beta fish food smashed it up with non sugars non flavored gelatin
They like to eat grapes plumb raisins cherry Apple
NOT ORANGE LEMON LIME KIWI

Yes, they love aphids! They actually sell ladybugs online to help rid your trees and plants of aphids! Not sure what else they eat though. (10/16/2007)
They also surprisingly eat cheese!
