Not all insects are pests. A case in point is ladybugs, which are beneficial because they consume other insects that can damage your flowers and vegetables. Ladybugs love to munch on aphids, mites, moth eggs and other pests.
This is why many serious gardeners welcome these colorful black and red bugs, which were named after Mary, the Mother of God. Part of the reason they were named “ladybugs” is because of the seven black spots on their back. Catholics have a devotion to Mary called the Seven Sorrows.
