Ladybug Invasion In Show Low, Arizona

October 22nd, 2014 · 1 Comment

It’s the 11th Plague!  Swarms of giant ladybugs have invaded Show Low, Arizona.  Oh, no!

The original Ladybug (aka Ladybird) rhyme is not so cute:
Ladybug ladybug fly away home,
Your house in on fire and your children are gone,
All except one and that’s little Ann,
For she crept under the frying pan.

Supposedly, the rhyme was written to signify the return of ladybugs to England at harvest time.  The people would try to shoo away the ladybugs to save them before burning the crops.
