Next time you're walking through the Mall of America and a ladybug lands on you, don't be alarmed. The ladybugs are there on a mission!

The Mall of America celebrated Earth Day on Monday by voluntarily releasing 72,000 ladybugs inside the mall.

The ladybugs were released in the Minneapolis mall in an effort to protect the large amounts of the mall's greenery, which are usually plagued by aphids.

If you're worried about ladybugs ending up in places they shouldn't be, a spokesperson for the Mall of America said they have been doing this for years and there hasn't been a ladybug take-over yet!
