  • People pay for lady bugs in their garden... Why are they bothering you??? I grow them and preying mantis in my garden... I just love them LOL... Send them to me!!!

    If you want to get rid of any bug you can go to most stores that have garden products...I try to use organic things so as to not kill my good bugs...but most pestisides will kill them... they are sweethearts... easy to kill.

  • If they're in your garden, you WANT to have them. Especially if you have roses.

  • Oh my word yes! When we lived in MI we were attacked by them! For about two weeks on two separate years, there were hundreds in our house! They weren't real ladybugs though, they were the bugs that looked like lady bugs, but would bite. We just vacuumed them up and about two weeks later they went away. It was terrible, I have a ridiculous fear of ladybugs now..

  • They come into our bedroom every year...tons of them! So far havent found any way to get rid of them. We just catch them in a cup and take them back outside. I'll be interested if someone can give you a good idea as to how to stop them.

  • Check out this site - it's about getting rid of them - talks about what you should do to prevent them, too....I hope this is what you're looking for. Also, another article said to just vaccuum them up and they'd eventually die. Good luck!!
