Some extremely strange news was reported on Thursday morning out of California. According to reports, a massive swarm of ladybugs was detected by the National Weather Service.
According to CBS News, the swarm of ladybugs was so large moving throughout San Diego County that it registered on the National Weather Service’s weather radar. They were detected on Tuesday night. The radar showed a type of “bloom.”
The NWS San Diego Twitter account said, “The large echo showing up on SoCal radar this evening is not precipitation, but actually a cloud of ladybugs termed a ‘bloom.’ #CAwx.”
According to AP News, the swarm was around 80 miles wide. Meteorologist Joe Dandrea said that the bugs were flying between around 5,000 and 9,000 feet. Most of the group was concentrated in around a 10-mile radius, though others were spread out up to 80 miles.
As of Thursday morning, no reports had been given regarding the exact type of ladybug that was a part of the swarm.
Some reports claim that there is a specific type of ladybugs, adult convergent lady beetles, that migrate from the Sierra Nevada to valley areas. There, they reportedly eat aphids and lay eggs.
