Fox Pest Control’s Manchester & Surrounding Areas Ladybug Exterminator Service

Ladybugs can be very beneficial to gardens, as they eat aphids and other sap feeders. While known for their red shell and black spots, ladybugs are less known for their ability to cause serious infestations in homes. Ladybugs and their close cousins the Asian Lady Beetle, can enter homes through small cracks in windows, doors, and walls. Once they are in your home they will crawl over everything and eventually die and leave an odor in your home.

Signs of a Ladybug Infestation

You might already know you have a ladybug infestation. But here is the sign ladybug exterminators look for in Manchester & Surrounding Areas.

Sightings

The only sign of ladybugs is to see them. They might be flying around your property, or they could be gathered in large numbers, which happens a lot, with Asian Lady Beetles.

Things You Need to Know About Ladybugs

  • There are around 500 species of ladybug in the United States — probably not that many in Manchester & Surrounding Areas. 
  • Ladybugs of the Harmonia axyridis species cause the most problems in the United States, because they overpopulate easily. 
  • Ladybugs can release a foul smelling chemical when picked up that’s meant to deter predators from eating them.
  • Ladybugs aren’t venomous.
  • They don’t sting, but they may bite if they feel threatened. 
  • They eat pests like scales and aphids that have a tendency to destroy plants.

Helpful Ladybug Prevention Tips: 

  • Use a vacuum to suck them up. (Squashing them could make a mess and stain fabrics)
  • Spread crushed or zested citrus peels around the area you don’t want ladybugs.

If you have plants in your yard, you probably have ladybugs —

After all, they do eat other insects that damage your plants,

They're no picnic, especially if you have more than a few.

When you have a lot of ladybugs, it's really tough to get rid of them without the help of an expert.

Which ladybug species are harmful?

Ladybugs aren’t necessarily harmful, but some can become a nuisance. The main species that can become a problem in Manchester & Surrounding Areas is the Asian lady beetle, Harmonia axyridis, which is an invasive species in the U.S. They can become a nuisance in your home by overpopulating the area and crawling all over the house, the yard, and other areas.

Are ladybugs poisonous?

While they don’t sting and aren’t venomous, some ladybugs can bite if they feel threatened, but their bites usually don’t hurt. Still, too much of a good thing (especially with a ladybug infestation), isn’t good after all.

What should I do if a ladybug sprays me?

Most ladybug species in Manchester & Surrounding Areas will release a foul-smelling chemical fluid if you pick them up. This fluid is meant to deter predators from eating them, so it won’t harm you as long as you wash your hands and clean up afterward. 

Are all ladybugs beneficial to the environment?

Most ladybugs are beneficial to your Manchester & Surrounding Areas garden by eating plant-sucking insects like aphids and scale. 

Do ladybugs make nests?

No, ladybugs don’t make nests.

How many kinds of ladybugs are there?

There are about 5000 species worldwide, but only around 500  in the USA.  In any event, too much of a good thing (especially with a ladybug infestation), isn’t good after all.

Do the number of spots on a ladybug tell you how old it is?

No. It’s a common myth that the number of spots tells the age of a ladybug. Different types of ladybugs have varying numbers of spots. Some spots are black, others are white. 

What do ladybugs eat?

Ladybugs in Manchester & Surrounding Areas will devour plant pests like scales and aphids, which will latch onto a plant and suck its juices out using their beak-shaped mouth, called a “stylet.”  Still, too much of a good thing (especially with a ladybug infestation), isn’t good after all.

Do ladybugs eat aphids?

In general, yes, ladybugs go after most aphids. However, they don’t like to eat all aphids, as some aphid “flavors” aren’t as savory to them as others.
