Q: Our house is suddenly full of ladybugs, they are everywhere! As harmless as they seem, it’s starting to get kind of creepy. Any ideas as to why this is happening, and is this something that needs an exterminator or can we do something about it ourselves? Thanks, EE
A: Ivan says – Let the ladybugs be. They’re looking for a place to hibernate for the winter and lay their eggs. These are the good guys. They eat garden pests, and they lay their eggs near where pest eggs already are, or may be laid. So ladybug babies will eat the bad babies when springtime comes.
If you let them be, they’ll help you, and you’ll have a happy garden when the weather turns nice after winter.
