Aphids like Roses. Above is a photo of one of my rose bushes in the front yard. As you can see, aphids have found a home there.
What’s that red thing crawling toward them?
It’s a Western Blood-red Ladybird Beetle, otherwise known as a type of ladybug. This one is native to our area and it looks like it is eating an aphid in this photo. I see more of these beetles than any other type of ladybug in my yard.
