Coccinellids, except for a few species, are friendly to man. Friendly, not because they do not bite but because they are pest controllers. They predate on aphids, psyllids, mites, etc reducing drastically the damage these insects cause to crop plants. This ladybug Eriopis connexa serves this purpose. It is native and has shown to be very effective to control aphids which attack maize, soya, wheat and sorghum crops. That is why it has been studied quite thouroughly to know its potentialities to be applied accordingly.
