Beetles - The Fourteen-spot Ladybird

First seen on Wednesday 14th July 2021 at Cragside

The Fourteen Spot Ladybird is quite a common yellow and black ladybird. Although it has 14 spots, several are usually joined together making it a bit more difficult to count. They are not very big (compared to a normal ladybird) at about 3-5mm. Gardeners friend - they feed on aphids.
