Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I have an Asian lady beetle problem?
Asian lady beetles are a type of occasional invader, they live outside
most of the time, in garden areas, but as the weather cools in the late
fall they seek indoor shelter to spend the winter in. They gather in large
numbers on the sunny sides of homes and other buildings for warmth. As
the lady beetles crawl up the exterior walls they enter inside through
small cracks and crevices found in and around doors, windows, utility
entrances, rooflines, and exterior walls. Once inside, they crawl throughout
the property until they reach a suitable hiding spot where they will remain
dormant until the weather warms back up in the spring. Asian lady beetles
tend to overwinter in attic spaces, behind walls, under floors, behind
baseboards, and in crawl spaces.
Are Asian lady beetles dangerous?
No, Asian lady beetles are not dangerous, they are not known to transmit
any diseases to people, do not bite or sting, and do not usually contaminate
food sources. Asian lady beetles are actually considered to be a beneficial
species because outside they feed on a variety of agricultural pests including
aphids and mealybugs.
