farm

The ladybug and the gentlemanbug are going to learn their 3 little kidbugs to milk their aphids. The ladybug-parents have learned it by the ants. "Adr!" says the one kidbug.

"Don't you want some food?" the father says. "Yes, but you shall give it to me," she says. "What will you do, when you are alone", asks the father. "I will never be alone - I'll be a family-ladybug," she says, "and I love you, dad!"

"OK, wait a minute, I'll come with some food," the father says.

Ah, so the ladybirds are going to eat the leaf-bugs (aphids?) so the wheat will grow well? Good old ladybirds.

Thankyou all for your kind comments!

To tiger-mouse: No, they're not going to eat them, they're going to milk them, just as ants milk aphids, they take their ekscrements (in danish "honningdug", in english "honey-?"), which are full of sugar.

In fact I was wrong - I thought, that it was the ladybugs, who "milked" the aphids instead of the ants - but now my ladybugs have learned it :)

Great ant, you have!

Tiger Mouse sagde ...

Ah ha - they will milk them. I saw this on a nature documentary once. That is very clever!
