Thrill of the day: my 7-spotted lady beetle laid eggs in her container! (So she is really a lady ladybug.) I’ll release her later today, in case she gets any ideas about eating the eggs. I hope they’re fertilized and they hatch; I haven’t reared 7-spots yet. Ooohhhh, little baby lady beetles! Dark and spikey and funky-looking – awwwww!
She’s a lady!
