Hey there! You guessed that bug right?!
This is the Asian Lady Beetle, more commonly known as a lady bug. This is not a “true bug”, as true bugs suck juices instead of chewing or chomping. The Asian Lady Beetle looks very similar to the American Lady Beetle to the untrained eye. There are over 400 species of Lady Beetle in the United States, making it difficult to identify them at times.
The Asian Lady Beetle can range in color from red, pink, yellow and orange. They can have few or many spots ranging in size and shape.
If you see a curious looking bug, take a picture, send us a message, and we’ll help you identify it!
