Ladybugs:

In most cultures, the ladybug is considered to be a good luck charm. Children love ladybugs because they are colorful and easy to catch. The most popular ladybug lore began in Europe during the Middle Ages when swarms of insects were destroying crops. Farmers prayed to the Virgin Mary. Soon after, the ladybugs came to devour the insects and save the crops. Farmers called ladybugs, �The Beetles of Our Lady,� and over time were called �Lady Beetles� or �Lady Bugs.� The red wings represented the Virgin�s cloak and the black spots were symbolic of her joys and sorrows.
