Two-spot ladybird Adalia bipunctata

Our most common ladybird, the black-on-red markings of the 2-spot ladybird are familiar to many of us. Ladybirds are beneficial insects, managing garden pests.

 

Conservation status

The two-spot ladybird has declined over the last decade, with one of the factors believed to be linked to the presence of the non-native harlequin ladybird (Harmonia axyridis). It is believed that the two-spot has declined in areas where the harlequin has become established.
