How To Identify An Ladybug Infestation

Appearance - Ladybugs are normally no larger then a millimeter in size. The body of a ladybug is normally red with black dots but can sometimes be a darker orange or even light yellow at times. Another characteristic to help identify if it is a ladybug is the shape of an "M" behind their head.

Behavior - Ladybugs will be most active during the warmer months and will be see flying around. Ladybugs will tend to seek shelter in colder months within your windows and other places where they can still benefit from the suns heat. Ladybugs are mostly beneficial insects that eat aphids, mealybugs and other insects.

While ladybugs are beneficial in the garden, they are not welcome when they decide to share your home, especially when it is a large number.

This is why calling us for ladybug control would be the next step. We will be able to provide ladybug extermination to the areas of your house where the ladybug infestation is located, and then effectively eliminate the problem.

Why You Might Have Ladybugs

Ladybugs become a problem in particular when they move inside our homes in search of warmth and protection over winter. Common reasons they get inside the home is due to cracks in caulk or seals around windows and doors. Attics, overhang vents, and roofs can also allow access for the ladybug if there are any damaged areas or cracks. A ladybug exterminator can determine where your ladybugs are coming from and where they are nesting. We can perform effective ladybug control and keep the ladybug infestation from taking over your property and home.

Reasons To Treat Your Ladybug Infestation Immediately

While ladybugs pose no risk to humans, any more then the occasional one wandering into your home is unwanted. Especially when they become an infestation and begin swarming in the warmer weather.

Sealing up cracks in your home are first steps you can take to discourage further ladybug problems. Calling our professional ladybug extermination team can ensure that successful ladybug control takes place and that your home and property are ladybug free.

How to Get Rid of Ladybugs

Proper ladybugs are cute insects. They are often found in yards preying on pests like aphids. However, there are a couple of problems with ladybugs. The first is that ladybugs look extremely similar to Asian beetles. These "bad" ladybugs do not have any of the beneficial aspects that real ladybugs bring to the table. Asian beetles bite and release a bad odor when crushed.

You know you are dealing with Asian beetles, not real ladybugs because they will have an "M" marking right where the head meets the wings. Ladybugs do not have this marking. Ladybugs are also smaller and do not have the orangish coloring of Asian beetles.

Once you have identified an actual ladybug infestation, you need to take steps to get rid of the pest. Read on to find out how.

How to Spot a Ladybug Problem

Real ladybugs are not a problem in the garden. In fact, they are beneficial insects. They prey on other garden pests. However, you don't want a lot of ladybugs in your home. Signs that ladybugs have invaded are listed below.

  1. Allergic reactions.

    Ladybugs can cause an allergic reaction in some people. If you or someone in your home is experiencing red eyes, coughing, hives, itchy skin, or breathing difficulties, it may be a sign of a ladybug allergy.

  2. Obviously, other pests can cause allergic reactions. But, if you notice large swarms of ladybugs in your home and also are experiencing an allergic reaction, the two may be related.

  3. Swarms of ladybugs.

    Ladybugs are known to swarm. Sometimes there can be swarms of 15,000 ladybugs or more. That is way too many ladybugs to have in your home. Ladybugs typically swarm inside a home as the weather gets colder. They are looking for a warm place to over-winter.

    Look out for ladybug swarms near the ceiling, in cracks and crevices, behind your walls, and in doorjambs or windowpanes.

  4. Yellow secretion on carpets and drapes.

    When ladybugs bleed they also release a yellow-colored secretion. This secretion will stain. Large numbers of ladybugs are more likely to get crushed and leave the secretion behind. If you notice a yellow stain on your carpets or drapes, you may have a ladybug problem.

How to Get Rid of Ladybugs

Ladybugs may not be a dangerous pest. In fact, they do have some benefits. But you really don't want ladybugs in your home. The following tips can help you get rid of those annoying ladybugs.

  1. Vacuum them up.
    While vacuuming does not remove the entire colony, it can help you control your ladybug problem. If you are worried about large numbers of ladybugs in your home, a vacuum can help you remove them.
  2. Dish soap and water.
    A spray made of dish soap and water will kill ladybugs on contact. Then all you have to do is remove the ladybug bodies. This is also a stop-gap solution to the problem.
  3. Use natural repellents.
    Natural repellents like lavender oil, citronella, mums, and bay leaves may help keep ladybugs from entering your home in the first place. These options will do nothing for a current infestation.
  4. Contact professional exterminators.
    For the most permanent ladybug removal, you need to hire a professional pest removal company. At GoLocal Pest Control, we can connect you with the best ladybug removal experts in your area. Contact us today to learn more.
