Back on March 25, 2020, we reported seeing lady beetles.
Two weeks later we found lady beetle larvae.
What kind? Those are convergent lady beetle pupae. Last night this stem had a pupa. Today it has a new adult beetle. Can you see the converging white lines on the thorax that gives it the common name?
If I could only find a few eggs, but it is likely these new adults will migrate to the mountains. Maybe next year…
