How To Identify Lady Bugs

  • Ladybugs are small, dome-shaped beetles with red or orange wings and black spots.
  • The Asian Lady Beetle, common in South Carolina, can be identified by the white 'M'-shaped marking on its head.
  • They measure about a quarter-inch in length.
  • Ladybugs have a smooth, glossy appearance and a short, rounded body.
  • In the fall, they often cluster on the sunny sides of houses and buildings.

Lady Bugs Habits

  • Ladybugs are beneficial in gardens as they feed on aphids and other harmful pests.
  • They tend to enter homes in the fall to overwinter in large numbers.
  • Once inside, they are attracted to light and warmth, often gathering near windows.
  • They release a yellow fluid as a defense mechanism, which can stain surfaces.
  • In the spring, they leave their overwintering sites to return outdoors.

How To Prevent Lady Bugs

  • Seal cracks and openings around windows, doors, and siding to prevent ladybugs from entering.
  • Install screens on windows and vents to keep them out.
  • Vacuum up any ladybugs that enter the home, being careful to avoid crushing them.
  • Use a mild soapy water solution to clean areas where ladybugs have congregated.
  • Contact Marett Pest Control for non-invasive solutions to manage large ladybug populations in your home.
