The Orange Ladybird and the Harlequin Ladybird

In the UK there are 47 species of ladybird!

Here are a couple from my garden yesterday.

The species on the left is the Harlequin  Ladybird and the one on the right is the Orange Ladybird

The Harlequin Ladybird is the is an invasive species – it is a non native species and is a threat to our native species.

The Orange Ladybird is associated with oaks and ash.

All ladybirds are predators of insects such as aphids.
