May 2008 The 2-spot Ladybird is a very common species in Britain and has variable markings but normally shows two conspicuous black spots on red wing-cases. Occasionally the pattern is reversed to give red spots on black wing-cases. The legs are black.
|It hibernates over winter in
houses, in nest boxes and in the bark of trees emerging in the
spring to feed on aphids.
