How many ladybirds can you see from where you are sitting?
However, my childhood home is named after an archaic term for a ladybird. Do I get a bonus point?
None of which sound like archaic terms for ladybirds.
I guess you must have loads?
and one fell off the rail and went into my face (nearly my mouth). What the fuck was it doing up there? the cheeky prick
Left the window open the weekend after I moved in, when I came back there were >10 ladybirds in my room. Fortunately they're really, really easy to catch and remove.
Could you not be more precise though? Being an auditor and all.
Thought it was a bit late in the year to be honest.
I would've mentioned it, but who am I to judge what ladybirds do?
I had half a dozen in my bedroom the other night after leaving my window open
You should've left a plate of aphids out as well to really sweeten the deal.
if you have one on your arm/hand, they nearly always do a little shit/piss on you. Like, 70% of the time. Little brown yellow thing. I'm gonna say they have the highest shit on human ratio of any animal. FACT.
if they're the harlequin type.
seek and destroy
suddenly appearing in our house. Just one at a time, but on numerous occassions. Often without windows being open.
is this a result of:
(a) One very persistent butterfly
(b) A nearby red admiral nest
(c) Something much more SINISTER
not the fucking butterfly thread. You hear me? Now GET OUT OF TOWN
Yeah, that's right!
Are you sure it's not your wallpaper? Maybe check with missus tonight.
in london......ahh nostalgia, you can really smell it in the bathroom
It was the ladybird equivalent of flying ant day, and there were hundreds of them on the southfacing white wall at the back of our house: pic.twitter.com/zYJNPM7t1m
We had a larvae and pupa in out bathroom in the week leading up to it too.
pupa don't preach nuff on the southfacing wall
yeah I'm done.
Can you update the Dadsnet thread please?
Good work Attenborough
It was definitely him that said that.
