Some things that are in nature that eat ladybugs are spiders, lizards and crickets. Because ladybugs are so small they do not provide a large meal, but these insects and small reptiles enjoy them just the same.
Surprisingly there are very few animals or insects that will prey on ladybugs. Ladybugs have a defense mechanism that emits an unpleasant odor to it's predators. While most find the odor offensive and move on to another meal, stinkbugs, spiders and toads will not shy away from a ladybug meal.
