Five ladybird facts
- There are nearly 100 species of ladybirds found in Europe and about 40 of these are resident in the British Isles
- The largest of the native British species is the eyed ladybird (Anatis ocellata) found in conifer forests and plantations
- There are some non-predatory ladybirds, like the yellow and black 22-spot ladybird (Psyllobora vigintiduopunctata) which eat the mildews and other microscopic fungi that grow on plant tissues and thus may help reduce the incidence of certain fungal diseases in plants
- The bright colouring of ladybirds - generally red or yellow with black spots - is thought to have a defensive function, by warning would be predators, like insectivorous birds, that the beetles are distasteful.
- When disturbed or handled most ladybirds discharge drops of a bitter, pungent fluid from leg joints and other parts of the body - a habit known as 'reflex-bleeding'.
