i'm afraid of ALL bugs (even ants)

EXCEPT for lady bugs. we had tons of them on our windows at work yesterday (and i work on the fourth floor). they WERE swarming all about. it was kinda cool actually

(and for the record i'm not afraid of snakes or rats or the like. JUST BUGS)

When Ladybugs Attack


If you’ve seen ladybugs crawling all over the place today, you’re not alone.

The little crawlers -- also called Multicolored Asian Lady Beetle -- are out in force because the Nor’easter forced them, like the rest of us, indoors, according to the state entomologist.

Then, the suns came, and the bugs came out, looking for a place to winter. Miami, anyone?

In the meantime, they are apparently popping up everywhere, especially light-colored houses, the entomologist said. Not that Google and Twitter are scientific tools, but people from all over are posting about swarms and infestations of the bugs, so it seems Connecticut is not the only ladybug-central Tuesday.......
