Although they paint a pretty portrait, lady bugs are not so glamorous when they invade our homes. And with the weather beginning to cool off, they will surely begin searching for a warm place to overwinter. What makes lady bugs a nuisance pest is that they congregate in large numbers which makes getting rid of them a difficult task.
In order to prevent a home full of these feminine invaders this fall, here are some lady bug prevention tips:
Seal off any cracks, holes, or other openings on the exterior of the home including near the windows and doors.
Also, seal off pipes and vents that provide an opening to your home with a screen or other form of seal.
Be sure that all windows have screens that fit securely and contain no holes or tears.
Consider ways to make your home more insulated as it is the heat escaping from the home that often attracts lady bugs in the first place.
