What is it about beetles that make them so darned cute?  Is it their shape or their color? Or the way they move with those little legs churning away under that bubblelike shell? Each winter, we have scores of ladybugs come out of hiding and make themselves at home inside the house. We feed them. We sprinkle water near them to drink and watch them fly spirals under the lights at night. If it’s warm enough, we encourage them to go outside and find some aphids, scale insects or other pests.
