Ive lived in Los Angeles all my life but suddenly never seen before bugs keep appearing… Orb weavers and this one in particular is what I call a Chevron bug but after a couple years of sitings and visitations I have no luck identifying the creature by myself online and figured I would ask you… Let me know if you know. Is it simple a beetle type or something? Should I fear or maim it in self defense?!

Lady Beetle Larva

Dear Lisa,
This is the larva of a Lady Beetle.  It is not harmful to people, but it will eat Aphids and other small insects.

Whoaaaaa! Thanks!!!!!!!

Your enthusiasm is refreshing.

I know now Im watching the four stages and thinking wow i love ladybugs and im glad i still loved them before they grew up to be cute and cheerful…larvae are pretty scary. Still they perch on me alot. Glad I could help out the cute ladybugs before they were pretty.
