Pest Facts from HomeTeam

Image of a common ladybug.

The ladybug is also known as ‘ladybird’ or ‘lady beetle’ and is typically 7 millimeters in size. It has a black or brown body, and its wing covers are commonly found in red, orange, or yellow, which include small black spots or markings. They have oval, dome-shaped bodies with three pairs of black, short legs.

While ladybugs do not pose a health threat, they can seek refuge indoors during warm and cold temperatures, becoming a nuisance to homeowners. Prevent ladybugs from invading your home by sealing potential exterior points of entry. To get rid of ladybugs, use a vacuum cleaner to get rid of them and quickly dispose of the bag.
