Caption: Ladybird eating aphids. Macrophotograph of a convergent ladybird (Hippodamia convergens) feeding on a group of aphids (family Aphidoidea). Certain ladybirds are bred for sale as biological control agents. The nymphs and adults are carnivorous and predatory, attacking and eating several plant pests, including aphids. Adult ladybirds can eat up to 50 aphids per day and effectively reduce the size of aphid infestations. Magnification: x2.25 at 35mm size.
