The chill of autumn has sent many pests – including mice and spiders- indoors to seek shelter from the cold. But, there is one less intimidating but equally bothersome invader: ladybugs! Also known as Asian beetles or swarms them insects have been reported in homes across America’s Midwest region into Northeastern states like New York where they damage property by eating clothes left close enough at night without being dried out before morning; this often causes rust stains on sheets due their unusual diet which consists mainly off protein sources such as beans/ nuts.
Lady bugs are a pesky invasive pest species that was introduced to America from Asia in the 1960s. They’re recognizable by their orange or red bodies and black spots!
Lady bugs may not be as scary or gross-looking on the outside, but these creatures have been known to cause major problems in homes! They’re pesky and it’s hard for homeowners who deal with them every year. The good news? You don’t need any natural born talent when dealing with this pest problem – just follow some simple guidelines from an expert like myself (I’m sure she’ll show up) so you can get rid of those unwanted visitors once again before they wreak havoc.”
Homeowners should seal cracks around windows, doorframes and utility pipes with silicone caulk to prevent lady bugs from entering your home. The most important areas for closing up entry points are those that get the most sun because this is where they’ll be drawn towards warmth- attracted by it just like any other animal would love going inside! If you want even more protection against these pesky insects try trimming shrubbery away from exterior walls as well – not only does a good pruning cut help keep them at bay but also reduces possible hiding places if need arises during winter months when their food sources may run low.
Vacuuming is the best way to get rid of ladybugs in your home, but make sure you dispose bag outdoors. The insects are known for secreting an oily yellow liquid when disturbed and releasing a odor just before they die so squishing isn’t suggested! To prevent or treat an infestation NPMA recommends consulting with pest professional who will be able recommend treatments.
