Ladybugs are a family of beetles that can either be a help or a pest, depending on the type. Some ladybugs are useful in gardens, feeding on aphids and other pests. However, other ladybugs, or specifically the Asian Lady Beetle, can be extremely destructive pests, feeding on plants themselves and destroying gardens and crops.
In Ohio, ladybugs also can begin appearing indoors in the fall, looking for a place to spend the winter—typically your attic. Schedule Bainbridge/SPS Pest Control service before the fall invasion.
