Lady Bugs attract more lady bugs

There are more than 450 ladybug species (Coccinellidae) native to North America. These small beetles are normally between 0.8 to 18 mm in length, and are especially beneficial to farmers because they feed on the same aphids that destroy plants. In the fall months, these small yellow and orange, or scarlet and black winged insects will invade home or businesses through any crack and crevice they can find.

 

Ladybugs are hard to get rid of once they have entered a home. They use pheromones as a means of communication to mate and hibernate. This chemical “scent” attracts other ladybugs, and can remain active year after year. Make sure all cracks around windows, doors, clapboards, and pipes are sealed to prevent a ladybug infestation.
