Congregating by the tens to thousands, native ladybug beetles pass the winter under the shelter of leaves, in rock cracks or under bark (and sometimes inside your cottage walls). Why so many beetles bundled together? Hibernating en masse, with males and females in ready proximity, may help the ladybugs get a jump on spring mating.
