The Asian lady beetle resembles a North American ladybug and gets its name because it is actually a different species that was artificially introduced to North America from Asia to control aphids. Asian lady beetles have become common in the Minnesota since the year 2000. The species is considered to be one of the world's most invasive insects. Asian lady beetles release an unpleasant smelling pheremone that attracts other Asian lady beetles, allowing them to invade homes over winter in large swarms. Asian lady beetles can leave a smell of dead leaves to discourage predators and bite if provoked.
How To Get Rid of Asian Lady Beetles A large number of Asian lady beetles may be found around the home in September and October as the weather gets colder and they look for a shelter to overwinter. Asian lady beetles can be controlled by sealing openings to the home where the insects may try to enter. Sweeping and vacuuming are also considered effective methods of removing Asian lady beetles, but be careful not to crush the beetles which causes them to release bad smelling pheremones that can attract more Asian lady beetles. A nylon stocking placed inside of a vacuum cleaner hose, secured with a rubber band allows the beetles to be bagged rather than collected inside the machine.
