How to use "Ladybird beetle" in context?
Ladybird beetles are very small beetles, typically about 1/4 inch in length. They are brightest in color at the rear of their body, which is commonly black but can also be red, yellow, green, or blue. Their elytra are a strikingly different color, either a warm light tan or a cool, bluish green. Ladybird beetles nest in colonies, usually in underground cavities, and lay eggs on the ground. Larvae swim around in water, eating algae and other necessary nutrients until they become adults.
