Fungus Eating Ladybirds

I was wondering what these little critters were. They always appear on my courgettes when the powdery mildew breaks out. Now I know they are fungus eating ladybirds.  They are rather beautiful :)

Hi Jools,

Thanks for the friend request. I'm fairly new to Ooooby too. Finding it quite informative. Especially since I've joined a few discussions groups like the one you commented in "bees."

Hello new friend of the garden, I need to check OOOOOBY more often as each time that I do I get a bit of inspiration eg your compost and garden beds just awesome.  Had the professional gardener down for a few days, Bridget, was really good got a couple of things done and pointed in the right direction again.  Girls gave us some plants for Christmas which was fantastic.  Well I will be watching your progress good luck.

Mark.

Cheers Mark.
