Ladybugs get a free pass where other insects would be swatted out of the house, clearly just because they have a cool color scheme. It's pure racism.

Ladybugs - called "ladybirds" here in Australia - are thought to be a sign of good luck,especially if one lands on you.They don't sting,bite or become a nuisance,so we don't try to eliminate them.

Well, it also depends on whether they're Chinese or native. 🙈😅

Here Ladybugs are called Pains In The Asses. We get so many of them in the house it like having flies. They are a pest

@smiler2012 what about mosquitoes? One of them can do some serious damage.

@GeniUs something in the uk that bears no consideration lol

@smiler2012 when they start to bite they are definitely worth consideration, unless I just have an allergy to the protein they inject because they cause massive swelling on me, bad enough to be bruised when it goes down. Based on this I will always attempt to kill mozzys.

Ladybirds as they are originally called get a pass because they do not bite or inject compare that to mosquitoes who I chase around the house whipping with a towel.

People don't set cat traps in their homes only because they have been genetically engineered to emotionally manipulate us

Lady bugs are black and red. It’s not racism, it’s affirmative action .

they sorta keep tabs on spider mites, if that's of any relevance to one's scenario

My dad was a big ladybug fan until one bit him. That was the end of that.

They eat other annoying insects. They get a pass from me for that.

Well spotted
Here’s further racism—they’re even more likely to be accepted if they’re not Japanese beetles. 😏
