Ladybug – What Is It?
Ladybugs begin to the Coccinellidae beetle family. This unique beetle ranges in size from 1/32 to ½ an inch. Most beetles are scarlet or red with a few small black spots on their wings. In addition to this, they’ll have black legs, heads, and antennas. With more than 5,000 species, it is estimated that 450 ladybug species are native to North America. Some ladybug species are pests in North America and Europe. Nevertheless, ladybugs are considered useful because they feed on other insects, including aphids, mealybugs, and scale insects.
At one time, millions of ladybugs were released at the Mall of America to protect the facility’s gardens.
What Causes Ladybugs?
Most ladybugs are benign, but some are pests in North America. The most common pest species came to North America during the 20th century in hopes of controlling the aphid population and protect agricultural crops. Since they were able to survive the winter, these ladybugs quickly grow and spiraled out of control. Now, they’re one of the biggest ladybug pests in the United States.
Are Ladybugs Dangerous?
Thankfully, ladybugs pose no danger to humans or animals. Still, certain species can bite or nip humans. An Asian lady beetle bite is not common, and they do not transmit dangerous diseases. The biggest concern is that you’ll have to clean up a mess once they’ve decided to leave. It is best to prevent them from entering your property in the first place.
How Can I Get Rid Of Ladybugs?
When the days get warmer and longer, ladybugs are going to learn their hibernation spots and travel outside. The only problem is that ladybugs are going to destroy your home during the winter. While they do not create nests, they tend to aggregate on south-facing walls, trees, and other objects. When it comes to eliminating ladybugs, there is no central nest. Therefore, you’ll need to kill each ladybug individually, and this can be very difficult. Our ladybug program is designed to eliminate ladybugs at the source. By working with us, you can rest assured knowing that the ladybugs will be gone before you know it.
