I’m not what you think, really!

[Editor: This Coccinellidae variant is headed for the roses and I wish it bon appetit.]

As a child, I had a toy shaped like a huge (perhaps 7″) ladybug. The bug had two large wheels, a motor connected to the wheels through some sort of escapement, and two antennae which served to deal with obstacles it encountered. Insert batteries, set it on the floor and watch it go! A collision with the right antenna caused the bug to turn left, etc. On one occasion we watched as it visited every room in our small house!

A pity your bug devastates roses. If I still had the plastic one I’d offer it to you… if nothing else, it could intimidate the one in your picture!

Ladybugs don’t hurt roses, they eat the aphids that attack roses. There are some types that will eat vegetation, but generally ladybugs are good to have around, like the crab spiders. They beat the hell out of chemicals.
