Like many animals and bugs, tend to come inside houses during the colder months to hibernate, escape the cold weather, and possibly lay eggs. They usually gather in large numbers and can be found in doorways, windows, and light sources. Ladybugs (Asian Lady Beetles) are generally harmless and do not bite, but some people may experience allergic reactions such as sneezing and skin irritation when in close contact with them. They can release a smelly fluid from their joints when they feel threatened. If you notice yellow stains and powerful smelly scents on your walls, clothes, and floorboards, it’s possible that you might have a ladybug infestation.
To prevent an infestation, there are some things you can do to keep them away. Regular maintenance of your home, sealing up cracks and openings around your doors and windows. However, if a ladybug infestation manages to get inside, you can easily dispose of it by using a vacuum cleaner.
If the infestation persists, the best solution is to call a professional pest control company like Plank Termite and Pest Control. They can spray the outside of your home to create a barrier that will prevent ladybugs from entering your property.
