I seem to recall that Miss Cupcake used to keep raise these guys. I just released several hundred in my garden. Here are some photos: Ladybird Beetle Gallery

I am very interested in insects myself. So where did you get them? Did you buy them or what? Do you use them to suppress the Infestation of the aphids? If so they should be predators which are carnivorous species to eat up those aphids.

I bought them at a plant nursery. I noticed some of my plants were being eaten so I put them on those plants. Surprisingly they didn't stay with the aphid-infested strawberries.
I also bought an egg sack of praying mantises. I'm going to put them around the garden once they hatch.
