Aw, ladybugs(” ladybirds” to Brits). Sweet little red beetles with black dots that are in some cases an annoyance and mainly simply neglected. Previously.

There’s a huge group of ladybugs– called a “blossom”– that’s so big it’s really appearing on radar in southern California.

On Tuesday night, the San Diego workplace of the National Weather condition Service tweeted out a video of radar in San Diego. However what seemed storm cloud ended up being something else totally. Let’s simply state things got dotty.

” The big echo appearing on SoCal radar this night is not rainfall, however really a cloud of ladybugs called a ‘blossom,'” the tweet reported.

According to CBS Los Angeles, the blob of bugs is 80 miles long and 80 miles wide, and is flying in between 5,000 and 9,000 feet high. (Disclosure: CBS is CNET’s moms and dad website.)

Twitter users had a couple of things to state about how the unusual incident uh, pestered them. “You sure it’s not bees on a vengeance objective?” joked one.

Some grumbled that the bugs bite, however a lot of took an useful view. “Well, much better than locusts,” composed one Twitter user.
