Good Ladybug Luck to the Second Graders in North Dakota
January 13, 2011
The LadyBug Shop–and we expect all ladybug lovers–hope that the kids in Tamara McKeiley’s second grade class are successful in their effort to get the state legislature of North Dakota to honor the ladybug by declaring it the state’s official insect.
We think they have a great case, especially given their focus on the beneficial impact of ladybugs on the state’s agriculture. If their effort is successful North Dakota will join the states of Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Tennesee is so honoring our favorite insect. See Wikipedia.org for a list of all the official stat insects.
The story of how the ladybug became Delaware’s official state bug in 1973 is related in photos and records on the LadyBug Shop website.
