Now that the weather outside is getting colder and colder, insects are looking for a warmer place, our home is the perfect choice.

You may have noticed more and more insects crawling in your home recently, but more often you may have noticed a large number of ladybugs in or outside your home.

Not only is autumn in full swing, but it's time for these insects to find warm shelters to spend the winter. Now, according to ctpost.com, the ladybugs you see in and around your home may not be native to Connecticut. These bugs may be what they call Harmonia Axyridis, or Asian ladybugs. If you see a large group of them on the side of the house, it is because they are attracted by the white structure. Look, in their native habitat, they usually hibernate in the area under the white cliffs. So you have a choice, either solve the problem or paint your house in a different color.

Once the weather turns cold, these ladybugs will start looking for shelter inside and find a place to settle in for the winter.

So the big question everyone who encounters this problem wants to ask is, are there more ladybugs this year than in previous years?

The answer is not that simple. Ladybugs are the product of aphid populations. If there are more ladybirds in the summer, there will be more ladybirds around, because it is one of the main foods in the ladybird’s diet.

So, what should you do if you have a ladybug infestation? Thanks to thisoldhouse.com, you can take some simple steps to try to get rid of the pests.

I’m sure you’ve heard this old myth: Ladybugs will bring good luck if they fall on you, and you will be unlucky if you kill them. Remember, this is just a myth and should not prevent you from getting rid of the problem as quickly as possible in any way.
