Did you know ladybugs are considered good luck?
In many cultures ladybugs are considered good luck and a symbol of protection. While other insects may harm plants or people, ladybugs are harmless, and even keep other pests away from crops and flowers.
Farmers and gardeners try to stop people from killing ladybugs because of their many benefits. This has contributed to the many beliefs that ladybugs are good luck and killing them can bring bad luck.
In France, ladybugs are known as “la bête à bon dieu” or God’s creature. The superstition says that if a ladybug lands on you, be careful not to brush it off.
Stay very still and count the spots. The number of spots will reveal the number of months that you will enjoy good luck. The color red also matters. The deeper the red, the longer your luck will last.
