The name ‘Ladybug’ came from Europe. We know that ladybugs are helpful for crops. They eat the harmful insects named ‘Aphid’.
Once the European farmers were fed up by the pests. When pests began eating their crops, the farmers began praying to the Virgin Mary.
Then the farmers saw some beautiful flies to eat the pests. And they believe that Virgin Mary sent them. So the farmers named them “beetle of Our Lady” after they arrived and cleared away the invading insects.
Ladybug is the short form of ‘beetle of our Lady’. They are also known as ‘Lady beetles’. So, this is the reason why people call it ladybug.
