Lady Bugs don't bug me, Lady

Minnesota’s Mall of America may be known as the largest retail complex in the country, but it is also now home to 72,000 lady bugs!  The ladybugs were released inside the 96.4 acre mall to help tend to the complex’s 30,000 plants and trees. The plants act as a natural air filter for the mall, and the ladybugs will help protect them from aphids and other pests.

Is it just me, or does this sound like the beginning story to something really bad happening, like in a Stephen King novel?

It's just you. Altho I gotta admit, King can make the most benign things into monsters.

Also lady bugs are adorable--which isn't something you can often say about insects and bugs.
