Home Invaders: Lady bugs!

March 2, 2017

 

The ladybug's a beetle. It's shaped like a pea.
Its color is a bright red  With lots of spots to see.
Although the name is ladybug. Some ladybugs are men.
So why don't we say "gentleman bug"
Every now and then? 

 

 

 

 

 

Lady bugs can be considered cute until they've invaded your home!

Lady beetles will often settle down for the winter beneath siding and shingles, in attics, soffits, porches, garages, wall voids, window and door frames. Owners of homes at risk should seal these harborages when practical. Properly timed, preventive treatment of exterior walls and surfaces with liquid residual pesticides may be of value, and is best done by pest management professionals. Once the beetles appear indoors, collect them using a vacuum cleaner.
