Over the past twenty years several native ladybugs that were once very common have become extremely rare! At the same time, ladybugs from other places have greatly increased their numbers and range. This is happening very quickly and scientists don’t know how, or why, or what impact it will have on ladybug diversity or the role that ladybugs play in keeping plant-feeding insect populations low. They want you to join them in finding out where all the ladybugs have gone so they can try to prevent more native species from becoming so rare. We encourage you to join in on the important (and fun) Lost Ladybug Project.
