Asian Lady Beetle
Our remedy for asian lady beetle control
First of all, contact us. The key to controlling an asian lady beetle population is to focus on prevention as best as you can. So, timing is everything. Seal as many cracks and holes on the outside of your home as possible, especially on the south and west walls where the sun heats the home during the late summer and fall.
Check out our Healthy Home Maintenance Plan coverage to control these and other occasional invaders.
How to Identify an Asian Lady Beetle
An Asian Lady Beetle is usually orange in color with black spots on its wings. They look remarkably similar to the red lady bugs we’re familiar with. They’re about 1/3″ in length.
Like box elder bugs and cluster flies, asian beetles congregate on the sunny south and west walls of buildings in early autumn, attracted to the warmth. They crawl into cracks and crevices on the outside of buildings and stay there for the winter out of the colder elements. On warm days, they wake up and emerge to bask in the sun.
Originally introduced to North American from Asia in the early 1900s, these insects were used to control aphids and scale insects on plants and crops. They do a great job at controlling those plant pests, but have now become pests themselves as they invade homes each year when crops are harvested.
Asian beetles prey on aphids and other plant pests, so they are found on a wide variety of plants outside.
