We’ve had these odd orange and black wormy-bug type things on our back porch lately. Sean was afraid of them because he thought they would bite him.
As it turns out, these are ladybug larvae, or ladybug babies, as I told Sean. So we’ve stopped killing them. Here are some other pictures that show various forms of maturity for the bugs.
We like ladybugs. Sean isn’t afraid of the bugs anymore. He thinks they’re kinda cute now. Here is a great site for those mysterious bugs you find.
