Asian Lady Bird Beetles
Asian Lady Bird Beetles can be a problem around the home because they are seeking a protected area to hibernate for the winter. Seal cracks and crevices around doors, windows and other areas where they may gain entry. Small infestations can be removed indoors with a vacuum. The Asian Lady Bird Beetle also secretes a compound that has an offensive odor, which can stain fabrics and wallpaper. These pests will also bite homeowners when disturbed.
Outdoors, spraying the exterior of the house with an insecticide labeled for this use can help prevent these insects from coming indoors.
