(WHAS 11)--Minnesota's Mall of America is home to some 500 stores, a theme park and now 72,000 ladybugs.

Third graders released them inside the shopping center this week as part of earth day
Ladybugs protect the mall's 30,000 plants by eating aphids.

Some mall goers worried the bugs might descend on the food court, but a spokesman says the mall has released the ladybugs for years, and there's been no ladybug takeover yet.
