Each insect undergoes a transformation process from egg to adult form which is ready to reproduce. This change in body shape is often very dramatic. Insect orders are often characterized by the type of metamorphosis. There are 2 types of metamorphosis in insects, namely complete metamorphosis and imperfect metamorphosis, the striking difference is that in complete metamorphosis the stage of forming a cocoon is not in the state of the cocoon stage, while in incomplete metamorphosis there is no cocoon stage.
Another insect ability that is believed to have been able to maintain the existence of insects until now is the ability to fly. Animals that can fly can avoid many predators, find food and mates, and spread to new habitats much faster than animals that have to crawl on the ground.

Ladybugs have a distinctive enough appearance that they are easy to distinguish from other insects. Its body is almost circular in shape with a pair of hard wings on its back. The hard wings on its back are colorful, but are generally brightly colored coupled with a pattern like spots. The colorful hard wings are actually elitra wings or forewings. The hind wings are transparent and are usually folded under the forewings when not in use. When flying, it flaps its hind wings rapidly, while its rigid front wings cannot flap and are stretched to increase lift (when flying). Its hard forewings can also function as a protective shield.
Ladybugs have short legs and a head that looks bent down. This position of the head helps it when eating small animals such as aphids. On his feet are microscopic fine hairs (can only be seen with a microscope) that end like spoons. These hairs produce a sticky, oily material that allows the ladybugs to walk and stick to difficult places such as glass or ceilings.

What ladybugs eat and characteristcs
The majority of ladybugs are carnivores that eat small plant-sucking animals such as aphids. Larvae and adults of the same species usually eat the same food. Ladybugs eat by sucking the body fluids of their prey. It has a pair of lower jaws on its head to help it hold its prey while eating. It then pierces the body of its prey with a special tube in its mouth to inject digestive enzymes into the body of its prey, then sucks the liquid body tissue of its prey. A single ladybug is known to kill 1,000 aphids in its lifetime.
The animals that prey on ladybugs are generally insect predators such as birds and spiders. Ladybugs have a unique way of defending themselves. When he feels threatened by danger, he will pretend to be dead by turning his body and pulling his leg inside. As a further protective mechanism, it will secrete a yellow liquid from the joints of its legs. This liquid has an unpleasant odor and taste so that if successful, the predator will not eat it because it can not stand the liquid.
In leaf-eating ladybugs, females that have just laid eggs on a plant will leave a bite pattern on the leaves to prevent other females from laying eggs on the same plant. In the four seasons region, if the female ladybug does not find suitable plants until close to winter, the female ladybug will delay releasing her eggs until the winter is over.
