I found these creepy little bugs in various states of growth on a rosebush near my front door. I first noticed them when I saw brown spots on a nearby plant. A quick Google search showed me that they are Asian lady beetle larvae. This invasive species has pushed out the native ladybugs throughout North America.
There are two stages of growth. The fuzzy one is a larval stage and the smoother one is a pupa. I saw lots of beetles too, but I couldn't manage to get a picture. They are very round and red at first, but turn orange or yellow with lots of spots.
I killed every one I found and trimmed the rose bush back almost entirely, to remove anything that looked damaged or diseased. There was also this sticky residue with black specks all over. I suspect this is leftovers from the larvae sacks after the metamorphosis into a beetle.

I was wondering how many legs do Asian lady beetles have.
Hi, insects have 6 legs. Arachnids such as spiders and scorpions have 8 legs.

I spied a ladybird on this pretty lilac flower in the garden. It's a seven-spot ladybird. I had to go look up her species to identify her. Isn't Mother Nature colourful.
I was doing a little spring cleaning by washing the inside windows. There he was, this little lady bug. I placed him outside and just had to snap a picture. Not only represents spring time, but perhaps a little luck.

This little lady was on my door the other day and I had to take a picture, I love ladybugs. Love all the spots! Sorry for calling you a lady if you are instead a gentleman, LOL.
