Ladybugs are beetles ranging in size from 1/32 of an inch to half an inch. They belong to the Coccinellidae family and are primarily red, orange, or scarlet. Ladybugs have a few small black dots on their wings. Their antennas, legs, and head are black. The North American continent is home to 450 native ladybug species, but there could be 5,000 species around the world. Although most species are harmless, a few are classified as pests in North America and Europe. Ladybugs are used in the Mall of America to eliminate aphids around the gardens.
Why Are Ladybugs In Your Home?
Ladybugs have been creating problems for Americans since the 20th century. The pest species were brought to the country around this time to eliminate aphids on farms. While the ladybugs were helpful for this purpose, they overstayed their welcome. Since they survived the cold winter months, the ladybug pest species quickly exploded. Now, they’re pests in our area and elsewhere in the United States.
Some pests are dangerous because they bite and inject venom. Others are dangerous because they spread illnesses. Thankfully, ladybugs will do neither. Despite not being dangerous, they will become a nuisance. Get rid of them or they’ll drive you insane.
