The Convergent Lady Beetle is native to North America. It feeds on aphids and other agricultural pests, making it common in agro-ecosystems. Although they can eat nectar and parts of plants, they will not reproduce unless there are aphids to feed on. Its number of spots can vary, however the maximum number is 13.
Convergent Lady Beetles will congregate along lake shores, especially in the spring and fall.
