  • Ughh! I know how disgusting these things are. Last year we had a horrible influx of them due to a very wet spring. They actually hatch from a larva in the grass. GROSS!
    Lowe's or Home Depot sells these hour glass shaped bags...just hang 'em AWAY from your trees. The directions will tell you how far. There is some sort of bait in them that will attract the beatles. They get in the bag and can't get out. Change the bag when it gets full.

  • I just want to say I understand...lol..We get them every fall and they swarm in, take over and it's just crazy. The only thing I do know is if you put baby powder in your vacum cleaner and suck them up with the hose attachment the powder suffocates them. They are hard to kill!
    but yeah I hate lady bug anything because of these pests
