In many parts of the world, they represent spiritual, personal, and financial prosperity. Not only is the orange ladybug a symbol of good luck, but they bring omens of protection, love, and vibrant life. They are generally a positive thing.

Orange ladybugs are very common, found across the United States in large numbers. One species is the Asian lady beetle, otherwise known as Harmonia axyridis.

They vary in color and can be plain or have red or black spots. The number of spots changes based on the species. The Asian lady beetle also has an M-shaped marking on its head.

That particular species originated from Asia but were brought to North America to control pests like mites, aphids, and maybe even other ladybugs.
