  • they aren't lady bugs. what you have are orange and stinky and ladybug is red. those bugs are purchased by farmers to do whatever it is that they do and then they migrate. alabama, mississippi and arkansas are really bad for them in october through dec.1.
    do not suck them up in your vaccuum, they will make your vaccuum stink forever. just let them die off as they become trapped in places and wait for the migration to end. then sweep them up and throw them outside.
    we lived through that for ten years. ughhh, this too shall pass.

  • These aren't the Lovely desired lady bugs! These are the Nasty ones brought here to do a duty. Then they weren't supposew to survive but they have! They're really hard to get rid of! Pesty. They bite & if you step on one or squish it, it leaves behind a icky smelly reddish residue!! Good Luck!! I have them here in WI. Yuck!!! They also I've heard, did in the Good wanted real genuine Lady Bugs!!

  • They were here too yesterday. And every year when a warm Fall day arrives, they are all over the sides of the house. They will go away when the colder temps move in. It's just what they do. My dog loves eating them, and phew.. they stink! LOL
