a bug's life

Many cultures consider Coccinellids lucky and have nursery rhymes or local names for the insects that reflect this.

For instance, the Turkish name for the insect is uğur böceği, literally meaning good luck bug.

In many countries, including Russia, Turkey, and Italy, the sight of a coccinellid is either a call to make a wish or a sign that a wish will soon be granted.
