What eat ladybugs?

Since childhood, we have learned that ladybugs are extremely useful insects.

The representatives of the family of beetles, which have the complex Latin name Coccinellidae, can understand how one could distinguish oneself by studying what ladybirds eat.

It turns out that in spite of the cheerful appearance, ladybugs are predators. Yes Yes! And their larvae are real gluttons. Eat 200 insects in a day - isn't this what is called a real gluttony?

The ration of ladybugs consists of aphids. These are such tiny insects sucking useful substances from the leaves. They multiply simply in infinite quantities.

Ladybugs are not averse to eat spiderweeds or vegetates too.

Scientists suggest that if the ladybugs had not eaten the hordes of aphids so effectively, we would very soon have forgotten what trees, grass and flowers look like.

Maybe that's why they were called divine. And they became cows, due to the similarity of the protective fluid (it appears from the glands on the folds of the legs when danger arises) with milk.
