Mum thinks ‘ladybugs’ on mattress is sweet luck signal – however could not be extra mistaken!


“I found a mom and a baby ladybug on my bed – something beautiful is going to happen today!”

Everyone loves a ladybug – they are just the cutest and it always feels like a fairy tale when one gently lands on one.

This is exactly how a mother felt and was so touched that she was actually lucky enough to see two at the same time, that all she had to do was share a cute snapshot on Facebook.

“I’ve always been drawn to ladybugs … I don’t know what it is. I just feel connected to them, ”she wrote.

“This morning I found a mom on my bed and a baby ladybug on my bed and I have the feeling that today is my day and something beautiful is about to happen!

“Do you all have lucky signs? Share your stories – feel positive. “

“Tho … these are bed bugs, ma’am,” said one Reddit user, and another added, “These things are going to make your life hell.”

“She should call them Itchy and Scratchy,” quipped a cheeky Redditor.

While others were a little more helpful by offering solutions to get rid of the nightmare pests.

“Lavender oil and long clothes when going to bed (full-sleeved shirts, sweatpants) help a lot!” one suggested.
