Need a little luck? Cross your fingers that one of these ladies land on you!
Ladybugs were first introduced to the southeastern United States, from Europe and Asia, by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to control aphids.They did not fare well in the United States as evident by their disappearance after only a few years. However; Decades later they were accidentally re-introduced to the U.S. via a freighter in a New Orleans port. They made their way to North Carolina in 1992 and, as hoped, have been very beneficial to gardeners and farmers ever since.
Whether you are a gardener, farmer, or neither; It has long been held by different cultures that ladybugs will bring good fortune into your life. Not everyone has the opportunity to run into one of these tiny creatures but you do- lucky you!
