Asian Beetle (Ladybug) Control

Ladybugs are usually considered a beneficial insect due to their diet of plant pests like aphids. However, the Asian lady beetle, also known as the harlequin ladybug, can be a nuisance pest when they invade your home. These insects are known to congregate in large numbers and can stain surfaces with their yellowish secretions.Let us discuss how to identify Asian ladybugs, the risks associated with them, and effective control methods to keep them out of your home.

Identifying Asian Ladybugs

Ladybugs are similar in appearance to the native ladybug species, with oval-shaped bodies and distinctive spots on their wings. However, they can be distinguished from native species by their larger size, variation in spot patterns, and the M or W-shaped marking on their thorax. They are usually orange or reddish-brown, but can also be yellow, brown, or black.

Risks Associated with Ladybugs

While ladybugs are not harmful to humans, they can be a nuisance when they invade homes in large numbers. These insects release a yellowish secretion when threatened, which can stain surfaces like walls, clothing, and furniture. In some cases, their secretions can also cause allergic reactions in humans.

Control Methods for Ladybugs

Here are some effective control methods to keep ladybugs out of your home:

  • Seal cracks and gaps: Ladybugs can enter your home through small cracks and gaps in windows, doors, and other openings. Seal these areas with caulk or weatherstripping to prevent their entry.
  • Use screens: Installing screens on windows and doors can help keep ladybugs out of your home while still allowing fresh air to circulate.
  • Vacuum them up: If you have a small infestation of ladybugs, you can use a vacuum to remove them. Be sure to dispose of the vacuum bag or contents in a sealed container to prevent their escape.
  • Hire Knockemout Pest: If you have a large infestation of ladybugs, it may be necessary to hire us to help you control the problem. Our professional technicians will use specialized treatments to eliminate the infestation and prevent future invasions.
