I spent the day killing lady bugs

I spent the day killing ladybugs.   An exaggeration, of course, but where on earth do these bugs come from, for god’s sake???  They’re way too big to fit through the screen.  (Unlike no-see-um’s, that made mincemeat of me one of my first summers living in Vermont.)   So how do they suddenly appear in droves?

I’m sure I could look it up and figure out (maybe ladybugs fly up through vents?  do they lay eggs?  immaculate conception?)  , but I got stuff to do, so I guess it’ll have to remain one of those mysteries of life to me.

I think it’s almost certain that insects will inherit the earth.   Probably along with fungi.
