Lady bugs are not being lady-like right now!

 Is your house bombarded by lady bugs this Fall? I've got to knock them down from my crown molding and vacuum them up. My sister's MIL had thousands on her porch the other day.

They are crawling in the bathroom, window seals, floors, counters...Sounds really nasty, but they are small...and cute. But bothersome!

Those are probably these guys, cousins to the ladybug: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asian_beetle 

They are not natives to the States, but were brought here by ag guys to deal with aphids, and have been a general nuisance to humans ever since with their aggressive behavior...I'm dealing with them in droves.

 That's what my DH said. Whatever they are, we've got them!

What state do you live in? And, WELCOME to our little group. It's good to have you here. Stop in and tell us a little about yourself. : )
