    Crazy boulder, CO. BTW, lady bugs usually eat other bugs that can harm plants. So they are good for farmers.

    oh man, you got to be really carefull when choosing music for this clip... it dosn`t take much b4 its no longer the "the annual lady bug swarm in the mountains above Boulder, Colorado." but becomes "HOLY SH*T WE ARE ALL GONNA DIE!!! GET THE CHILDREN! WE MUST HEAD FOR COLDER CLIMATES!!!!!"

    "

    I believe they eat other bugs and pollinate, we have this place on our mountain called "Ladybug Saddle" and it used to be an area filled with THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of ladybugs, they would migrate there, you would see trees that just looked red, the bark anyway, because it would just be ladybugs. They stopped going there one year for some reason and never came back, weird.

    I always liked ladybugs until now....this just made them really creepy. And, ya know, letting that little guy get all crawled on by those ladybugs is only going to lead to one of those weird news stories: "Man found to have dozens of ladybugs in his brain - still alive - possibly from a childhood visit to Colorado during the `swarm`" It could happen.

    Ladybugs do not bite. You must have some other kind of bug.

    No Ladybugs don`t bite, but their cousins the Asian lady beetle ,who look exactly like them, do bite. Look it up.

    What stuck me most about this video wasn`t the number of ladybugs. But the wonder of the child. It`s something i miss from being little. When everything was new and exciting.

    is amazed that people will let ladybugs land and crawl on them but if a roach or a centipede does it, the bug would get squished. and don`t tell me it is because they are pretty. have you ever flipped one over? they are just as creepy as other bugs.

    I work at a day camp in Colorado, and so I was there for the swarm and it was *so* cool. In the afternoon the kids and I would watch literally clouds of ladybugs flying around in the afternoons, and it was really quite beautiful.

    And then one little kid came to me with two *busy* ladybugs and said "Look! Their butts are kissing!". XD

    Ladybugs are natures perfect predator. They keep your garden free of pests and are totally harmless. I cant say enough about these awesome little guys. The wonder on the child`s face was priceless.

    So... they`re nature`s perfect Predator... but they`re totally harmless? What do they prey on then, their own feet?

    Roaches are known for carrying disease and centipedes have a painful bite and are poisonous.

    It does not surprise me that the thought of touching one disgusts or scares most people.

    They are fascinating creatures, however.

    Roaches are not actually know to carry any disease, and are actually one of the cleanest insects around. Roaches are commonly perceived as filthy because they generally live where there is much filth. But contrary to that roaches are not as filthy as the garbage they live in because of their extreme grooming habits.

    Anyone know why some of the ladybirds have like black and white areas on the back of their heads and some don`t? Is it a sign of sex and, if so, which one is male and which is female?
