Professional Lady Bug Pest Control Detroit MI
The ladybug “ladybug: is a member of the beetle family “Coccinellidae.” The insect grows up to 0.5 inches in length, with a protective shell that minimizes injury during flight, capture, and eradication. The ladybug’s shell ranges from bright red to orange to yellow, sprinkled with tiny black dots. The shell houses the ladybug’s wings, which allow for short-distance flights from point A to point B.
Scientists have identified more than 5,000 Coccinellidae members, 450 of which are scattered throughout North America, including Michigan. The ladybug is both a nuisance pest and an industrial farmer’s helper. The diet consists of aphids, coccids, mites, mealybugs, and whiteflies. If you look closely at the diet, you will notice it consists of insect species that plague industrial, commercial, and independent farmers. The aphid, for example, devours various plant species, such as those found in gardens and orchards.
Why Do I Have Ladybugs Swarming My Detroit Home?
Ladybugs were initially brought to the United States to help industrial and commercial farmers better control their aphid population. Aphids cause thousands of dollars in crop damage in the United States each year. Thanks to the ladybug species, farmers can ensure their crops are healthy as the harvest season approaches each year.
Ladybugs overwinter throughout the winter season. They tend to enter the overwintering state before or immediately following the onset of the winter season. Ladybugs prefer a warm, dark, and discrete shelter to lose tree bark, plant leaf, grass, shrub, or woodpile when overwintering.
These insects infiltrate homes through tiny crevices and holes no bigger than a few centimeters.
Do Ladybugs Carry Disease In The United States?
There is no evidence that connects ladybugs to insect-borne diseases. These insects are nothing more than a pest to everyone they come into contact with throughout their lives. Ladybugs are more of a hindrance between spring and late fall or early winter.
The good news, ladybugs do not feed following home infiltration. They also do not reproduce until they leave their indoor hiding place in the early spring.
The most intrusive feature of the ladybug is a natural safety mechanism that utilizes a pyrazine-based secretion. Pyrazine is a chemical produced by a gland. The secretion contains properties that stain some surfaces and smells terrible.
How Can I Get Ladybugs Out Of My Detroit Home Without Harming them?
We suggest utilizing a vacuum cleaner. Suction all visible live ladybugs up into the vacuum cleaner debris bag. You can release the insects back into the environment or seal the debris bag and leave them to perish.
Once the ladybug has found a suitable hiding spot inside your home, detection may not be possible. These insects do not build nests and remain in a dormant state for several months after home infiltration. The insects can be found hiding behind wall art, in unused jackets, underneath furniture, and in cracks and crevices in the damaged structure of your home.
Does Over-The-Counter Insecticides Work For Ladybug Infestation?
Since the ladybug is a social insect species, colonization is a possibility. To ensure the longest survival rate, ladybugs build colonies of thousands. Where there is one ladybug, there are most likely others lurking nearby. Keeping this in mind, over-the-counter pest control products are low-potency formulas with extermination limitations.
Our professional ladybug control is the solution, as it is suitable for infestation of all severity levels – mild, moderate, and severe.

Do Ladybug Insecticides Pose Environmental Risks?
Only when misused, do chemical-based pesticides cause environmental damage. Our exterminators and technicians undergo extensive pesticide safety training to ensure they know the Michigan pesticide laws.
