What is a ladybug? You’ve likely spotted a ladybug or two around your home, but you’re not sure what you’re dealing with right now. Ladybugs belong to the Coccinellidae family of beetles. They range in length from 1/32 to ½ an inch. In terms of color, most are scarlet or orange with small black dots on top of their wings. When looking at a ladybug, you will notice that their legs, antennas, and heads are usually black. While there are more than 5,000 species of ladybug worldwide, estimates show that 450 or more are native to North America.
While you may want to get rid of the ladybugs from your yard, you should know that these pests are useful. They’re helpful because they can help get rid of aphids, mealybugs, and scale insects. If you need to protect your garden from pests, you’ll want to add a few ladybugs to your garden.
Why Does My Yard Have Ladybugs?
While most species of ladybugs are okay, some fall into the pest category. One pest ladybug species was introduced to North American in the 20th century in hopes of controlling aphids. The only problem is that these ladybugs were tougher than expected and survived through the Winter. As a result, their population exploded. These ladybugs survive the chilly winter months by seeking shelter on the Southside of buildings. In addition to this, they can move inside of buildings to hibernate.
Are Ladybugs Dangerous To Humans?
The good news is that ladybugs are not dangerous to humans or animals. This is always a chance that an Asian lady beetle or ladybug will bite you though. This is rare, but it has happened. Nevertheless, ladybugs do not carry or transmit dangerous diseases. You don’t have to worry about ladybugs making you sick but you’ll likely want to get rid of them before they create a mess in your home.
How Can I Remove The Ladybugs In My Home?
If you’re patient, the ladybugs will most likely leave on their own. Once spring arrives, the ladybug will leave its hibernation spot and travel outside. However, you don’t want this pest to stay in your home throughout the winter. When you have ladybugs, you’re going to know it. This pest won’t create a nest but it will leave a mess in your home.
