What Is A Lady Bug?
Ladybugs belong to the Coccinellidae group of beetles. Most are small and scarlet. In terms of size, they can range from 1/32 to ½ an inch. Today, there are more than 5,000 known species of ladybugs around the world. North America is home to 450 native species. Some species are pests in North America and Europe, but most species are useful because they eat scale insects, mealybugs, mites, and other pests. Some farmers release ladybugs to get rid of pests in their fields.
Why Does My Home Have Ladybugs?
Most native ladybug species are benign, but some fit into the pest category. The most common pest entered North America in the 20th century in an attempt to reduce aphid populations. However, they eventually became a problem since they managed to survive during the winter by hiding on South-facing exterior walls.
Are Ladybugs Dangerous?
Ladybugs are not dangerous to humans or pets. Nevertheless, the Asian lady beetle can bite humans. It doesn’t happen often, but it can happen. Even then, you don’t have to worry about this pest transmitting disease or breaking your skin. The bigger problem with ladybugs is the fact that they’ll create a nuisance and mess in and around your home.
