"On Wednesday evening, the National Weather Service in San Diego posted a GIF showing a large cloud that had shown up on its radar in the San Diego County area. It wasn’t weather; it was a bloom of ladybugs. The Los Angeles Times reported that the swarm was about 80 miles long by 80 miles wide, with a concentrate mass 10 miles wide.
The bloom of ladybugs was flying at between 5,000 and 9,000 feet in altitude. According to SFGate, a ladybug blooms occur every year as the beetles move from the Sierras where they winter in order to find food."

They're good for our gardens. They used to sell them, mail order, and they would arrive in little damp, insulated cardboard boxes. I got a turtle mailed to me in one of those boxes, as a surprise gift, and he lived for many years.

Sorry I'm so nostalgic tonight, someone in my past died, and I've regressed to the California Days.

Exminion, you can still buy those little cartons full of ladybugs at nurseries in the springtime. Every year my children and I buy a couple and then release them all at the same time. It's magical.

I'm sorry for your loss...

I saw the radar image and was aghast at it. Wonderful! LadyBeetles are such a positive member of our environment.

HH =)
