 Many people believe that ladybugs will bring good luck. If that's true, then one community in Colorado is having an extremely lucky year.

Even in a neighborhood, where every neighbor keeps a close eye on any and all visitors, the 4-year-olds were likely the first to spot them.

"It’s just swarms of ladybugs." Lanae, a local resident, said. "There's lots of them here."

But because they're now impossible to ignore, the new residents have the old residents worried about what will happen once we take our camera to the top of their mountain.

"It’ll be interesting what you see up there," Lanae said.

The higher you go - the more amazing this gets they say -and it is tourist season after all.

"We can take swarms of ladybugs, but swarms of people would be a bit much," Jonathan, a local resident, said.

So we told amateur photographer and full time computer programmer, Jonathan, if the news crew would agree not to disclose this location - would he agree to escort us to the peak. So we went on up.

And a couple hundred feet later, we came upon a tree - that looked like it had red bark - only thing is - it wasn’t red bark. It was covered with ladybugs.

How many are here? Who knows? But supposedly they bring good luck.

"If you kill a ladybug, it's guaranteed to bring rain the next day,” Lanae said. “Just by walking around up here I think we're guaranteed for rain for days to come."

Just please remember this, "We appreciate the peace and quiet. I’m sure the ladybugs do to," Jonathan said.

A million or so visitors are about all this neighborhood can handle right now.
