Okay. . .

That is a lot of dead ladybugs.

Just a bit of background to explain that statement. I have a server room in a converted bathroom. Typically, server rooms are supposed to be cold. The colder the better. The air conditioning unit in said bathroom has a bad compressor. So, it’s got to be replaced. When our facilities guys moved the thing, underneath was one large ladybug graveyard.

Ladybugs. Lots. Dead. A “plethora,” if you will.

I want an entomologist to come explain this phenomenon to me. And an etymologist to explain plethora.
