Ladybug Superstitions and Good Luck
The Ladybug makes the perfect present for someone staring a New Venture because they are supposed to signify a financial windfall. Also, for people falling in love, beacuse the Ladybird is said to herald future luck in love (for example, as an Engagement gift or something for the Wedding Day . . whether it be for guests or participants like ushers, matron of honour, bridesmaids, bride's family, and so on.) Ladybugs would also be appropriate on gifts to pass on wishes for good health.
There are several superstitions when it comes to ladybugs. All seem to radiate from the insect's positive influence over pest control in gardens. If you kill a ladybug, you'll have bad luck. This superstition may have sprung from the fact that farmers depend on the insect to help keep the aphid and other insect pest populations down.
