Seven-Spotted Ladybug Paper Model - by Canon - Joaninha De Papel


Ladybugs are small, colorful insects related to beetles, measuring no more than about one centimeter in length. Around 160 types of ladybugs are known to exist in Japan. The most familiar species are the seven-spotted ladybug, with its pattern of seven black spots on a red background, and the common ladybug, whose patterns vary widely. Since these insects are carnivores that prey on aphids and spider mites, they are often utilized to eliminate pests. - Canon
