Can Hamsters Eat Ladybugs?

Ladybugs are a widespread family of small beetles ranging from 0.8 to 18 mm (0.0315 to 0.708 inches).

They are commonly yellow, orange, or red with small black spots on their wing covers, with black legs, heads and antennae.

However such colour patterns vary greatly.

For example, a minority of species, such as Vibidia duodecimguttata, a twelve-spotted species, have whitish spots on a brown background.

They are found worldwide, with over 6,000 species described. (source)

Unfortunately they cant eat wild creatures at all as there is a risk of what they may be carrying which may harm a hamster.
