    They are all over my shop and every time I open the door they fall all over me. Smashed lady bug smell on the neck has to rank right up there with vomit on a school bus.

    I pulled the bag out of my shop-vac, put a few inches of soapy water in it, and went to work. I must've vacuumed several thousand off the front porch and door and I still couldn't keep up with them. I was able to drown several of those big red wasps that the ladybugs probably called in as air support. Finally had to fall back and placed the vacuum inside the front foyer just to get the ones that made it in.

    Considering having my RV bug bombed because of them. They are pains in the butt.

    You don't want to kill them because they are very beneficial bugs. Vacuum them up then turn them lose.

    A couple dozen may be beneficial. We're talking Old Testament Plague numbers here.

    Jason, My Brother Steve is very allergic to Asian Lady Beetles. This morning he told me he is going to have to call his Doctor to see if he can find some medication for his allergy. He has been unable to get a good nights sleep due to these creatures!

    Camper was full of them last weekend. Gonna go out tomorrow & toss a bug bomb in it before heading back out on Thursday! That usually takes care of them for the year...

    I have Terminix coming to get rid of them. Have been bad here also. Front door was covered. They will pull the siding loose crawling up under it.

    These Asian Beetles becoming a real nasty pest is the result of a Big blunder by the USDA. Another example of Government stupidity.

    I know they taste terrible in coffee. Had one land in mine Sunday morning. Didn't know it until it was in my mouth.

    Maybe they are sent from the deer gods to help fight the EHD spreading midge.
