Asian Ladybug Beetles

The Asian lady beetles as were released at numerous locations by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to help reduce populations of aphids, scale insects and mealy bugs. You might say that this experiment proved that you can get to much of a good thing. For some in northeastern Ohio the advent of fall is proclaimed with a growing swarm of these Asian visitors.

They come in a wide array of colors from mustard yellow to red and with spots to almost without spots. They come to spend the winter with your family and usually emerge by
windows.

The best time to treat these visitors is in the Fall when they are looking to come in the structure. After a few days of sitting them is the best time to call.

If they are not treated in the fall then you can expect to see some emergence on sunny days in January and February. Ladybug beetles do not reproduce in the structures of homes
or businesses. They reproduce on exterior plants which may have aphids or scale.

Crushing these insects may leave some staining. Asian lady beetles can bite , which anyone who has emerged from a swarm of them can attest to.
