Today I captured a Harlequin Lady Beetle. This Asian Beetle was introduced in 1988 to North America. It was believed to be a natural form of pest control for aphids. Rose growers were delighted. No more pesticides. But the plan turned into a disaster. The Harlequin Lady beetle is now considered an invasive species. In London where it was recently introduced it is wiping out the 46 native species of ladybugs.
