Massive ladybug swarm flying over the Victor Valley shows up on radar

HESPERIA, Calif. ( — A ladybug phenomenon that appeared on the radar of the National Weather Service made it’s way over the Victor Valley earlier this week.

On Tuesday, June 4, 2019, at 8:41 pm, the San Diego branch of the NWS tweeted: “The large echo showing up on SoCal radar this evening is not precipitation, but actually a cloud of ladybugs termed a “bloom” #CAwx.

The weather service told the Los Angeles Times that the ladybug “bloom” appeared to be 80 miles by 80 miles, flying at 5,000 to 9,000 feet.

Officials didn’t immediately know what type of ladybug was causing the phenomenon and aren’t sure where the insects were traveling from or where they came from.
