    Hi guys,

    I just noticed many ladybugs invading our home yesterday. After killing all of them in the night, my wife noticed some more today.

    They all seem to be coming in from the same window in our breakfast room. I have sprayed that area with Bayed advanced formula.

    I don't see any visible gaps in the window or bug screen.

    Any recommendations and has anyone else in the area had this problem before?

    My house is relatively new as it's only 2.5 years old.

    Shyam

    It's an annual thing here in the Ashburn area. However - if they are the RED LadyBirds - don't kill them. If they are the pink variety - CRUSH THEM!!!!!! THey are an invasive bug!

    They are trying to keep warm. Just vacuum them up.

    Vacuuming them up is the best relief. They will keep coming for a little while. Many people see the red lady bugs as good luck for.

    Thanks for the info guys.

    They came for about three days and then stopped not sure if it was the Bayer advanced or if they just found somewhere else to go.
