According to folklore, a ladybug brings good luck to a person on whom it lands. If a ladybug lands on a person who is sick, it is said to eliminate the illness.

Each spot on a ladybug’s back indicates one month of good luck. The more spots the ladybug sports, the longer the run of good luck a person can expect to enjoy. Most cultures throughout the world believe that ladybugs are lucky, associating them with fair weather, financial luck, granting of wishes or luck in love. Some believe that if a ladybug lands on an object, a new and better version of that object is forthcoming shortly.
