The ladybug is a member of the Coccinellidae group of beetles. Although some are up to half an inch in length, some are only 1/32 of an inch. Suffice to say, some ladybugs are very small. They’re usually red with a few black spots on their wings, but they can also be yellow or orange. There are more than 5,000 known species of ladybugs in the world with 450 or so being native to North America.
While most ladybugs are harmless, some are classified as pests in North America and Europe. If they’ve invaded your home and you’d like to get rid of them, call our office. We offer comprehensive ladybug removal services for customers in our service area.
Why Ladybugs Invaded Your Home
You’re probably wondering why ladybugs have decided to enter your home. You can rest assured knowing it wasn’t something you did. Even if you clean your home every minute, you won’t be able to keep ladybugs out of your residence. You’ll have to seal your home from top to bottom instead because lady bugs are overwintering pests. They want to enter your home before it gets cold because they cannot tolerate cold temperatures. They can take shelter elsewhere, but they’re interested in entering your home.
Seal every small gap around your home to keep these overwintering pests out.
Are you worried that ladybugs are going to make you sick? While these pests are not dangerous, they can create other problems. For instance, you should know that certain ladybug species can bite. They will nipple on your finger. They’re not strong enough to break through the skin so you’re not going to bleed. You can rest assured knowing that they’re not going to spread illness or disease. They will create a mess in your residence though. Get rid of them and take steps to keep them out for the long run.
