Why are ladybugs called ladybugs?



  1. 0 Votes

    Sources say that ladybugs are named after the Virgin Mary. The story is that during the Middle Ages in Europe, many farmers’ crops were ruined by insects and pests. The farmers would pray to the Virgin Mary for help, and suddenly many ladybugs came and ate all the pests. They were so thankful for the ladybugs they named them “The Beetles Of Our Lady”, it was soon reduced to simply “ladybugs”.
