    1. coldfingers


      We once had a swarm of ladybirds down south here and they were biting people then. Usually I think it is a sign they are hungry and try anything that moves! There has been a great increase in the red ones in the last week. before was mainly the harlequin ladybird.

      I was in Norfolk last year when they had the ladybird swarms, for someone who doesn't like flying insects (me!) it was horrific.
