14 Spot Ladybird (Propylea 14-punctate)

Propylea 14-punctata is entomophagous feeding on aphids, Aleyrodidae , Coccoidea, and on larvae and eggs of some beetles and butterflies. A female lays about 400 eggs. This is necessary as there is often a high mortality among the larvae. The beetles overwinter twice.
