Have you ever killed one of these?

I have *blush, kicks self* But in my defense, I didn’t know they were ladybug larvae. They’re just…. so awful looking. So, if you see these, let them be. They are one of the best all-natural garden defenses!! They eat aphids, which are some of the worst & hardest to get rid of garden pests! LET THE LADYBUGS LIVE! I’ve even shown my kids & have (hopefully) made them understand these weird looking creatures are our friends!
