What Are Ladybugs?
Ladybugs are predatory insects found on plants; they commonly feed on aphids, scales, and mites that also live on plants. They are brightly colored with six black spots on each wing. Ladybugs are oval in shape with a small head and turned downward and about ½ the size of a green pea.

When they invade, they invade in large numbers.
Ladybugs are predators to other pests that harm garden plants, such as mites and scale insects.
Why Are They In My House?
Ladybugs often enter homes in our region during the fall months when the weather starts to cool off. They are looking for a warm place to stay over the winter; they often congregate in large numbers to hibernate. They gain access to your home through small cracks and crevices in your foundation, roof eaves, and siding.

Ladybugs are not dangerous and they do not bite or sting. They are considered nuisance pests.
