19-FEB-2004 Ron Lutz 2nd


Carnegie Museum of Natural History

After months of ice & snow the weather finally broke and it reached a balmy 50° F (10°C)!! At the end of Fall the northern US was swarmed by little orange beetles that many thought were Ladybugs but were in fact a plague of invasive Asian Lady Beetles. I never thought I would be happy to actually see another one but being the very FIRST insect I’ve seen outside in a while…
