More About Ladybugs
Although you know what ladybugs are, you may not know that they belong to the Coccinellidae family or that they’re beetles. Most ladybugs will grow up to ½ an inch in length with most being red, yellow, or range. Ladybugs have black spots across their wings while their other body parts are black. Today, it is estimated that there are more than 5,000 species of ladybugs in the world but roughly 450 are native to North America. Although ladybugs are overwintering pests, they’re helpful to the environment because they can get rid of aphids around gardens and crops.
In addition to this, they’ll eat scale insects, mites, and mealybugs too. The Mall of America and other establishments use these bugs to control others.
Why Have Ladybugs Invaded My Home?
You’re likely worried about ladybugs because they’ve overrun your home. Although they’re usually benign, they can be an annoying pest. The pest species was brought to the United States in the 20th century to get rid of aphids. Although it worked, it was created other problems. The ladybugs found a way to survive so their population climbed significantly. They’re overwintering pests so they can hide in and on homes to survive the cold, winter months.
Should I Worry About My Health Around Ladybugs?
While ladybugs should be kept out of your home, you shouldn’t have to worry about your health. Ladybugs are not dangerous creatures because they won’t bite your fingers. Even if you pick up ladybugs, they shouldn’t bite, but some species have been known to nip. Even when this happens, the bugs are not going to transmit dangerous diseases so your concern should be limited.
How Can I Deal With Ladybugs?
Once ladybugs have entered your home, getting rid of them should be your primary concern. However, you should be patient. Since they’re overwintering pests, they’re going to return outside once the temperatures increase. Nevertheless, you may not want to wait that long.
