    c) Harlequin ladybirds were brought to Europe by the europeans farmers from Asia, to protect their crops. In 2004 these ladybirds were banned, but it was too late because Harlequin ladybirds had just crossed the channel to England.

    d) The man in the video says ‘ they are a wonder drug but with very nasty effects’ because Harlequin ladybirds eat acids but they also eat everything else.
