Milford’s Bug and Bud Festival started in 2004 to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the ladybug being named Delaware’s state bug. After reading an article about state trees, flowers and bugs, the children of the second-grade class from Milford’s LuLu Ross Elementary School asked their teacher, Mrs. Molly Brown Rust, if Delaware had a state bug. The answer was no. Thus began a year-long effort by the class, culminating on April 25, 1974 with the state legislature voting to designate the ladybug as the state bug by virtue of its agricultural usefulness and the outstanding class presentations to the legislature.
