They fly by opening their wings,and jumping..jkjkjk....

Ladybug's hard protective shell, called the elytra, are actually a set of modified forewings. To fly, the ladybug opens up the elytra and unfurls a second set of delicate wings - the alae. The wings are about four times as big as the ladybug itself.
The ladybug's wings are interlaced with veins. The wings fold along these veins when they are packed under the hard shell.

Wing Motion
Ladybug wings move rapidly in a complex stroking motion, flapping perhaps a hundred strokes or more per second. Each wing can move up and down, forward and backward. The wings can move independently of each other.
