Exterminators for Asian Lady Beetles
Professional Asian Beetle Pest Control in Southeast Wisconsin
When your Wisconsin home or office building is overrun with insects that look like ladybugs, call in the team of professional exterminators at Ehlers Pest Management. Store-bought ladybug pesticides are harmful to your home and to the environment. Ehlers offers comprehensive, environmentally-friendly pest control services to effectively exterminate pesky ladybugs, Asian beetles or other types of beetle found on your property.
Swarms of these bugs often occur during the autumn months, and large groups of them can be found wherever there’s sunlight. They might look like native ladybugs, but the ones invading your home are most likely their more aggressive relative: the Asian lady beetle. They’re often found in places such as:
- Houses and building exteriors
- Outdoor areas with food or drink
- Rock outcroppings
- Outdoor decks and chairs
- Window frames and crevices
Signs You May Have a Ladybug Infestation
- Seeing them – The most obvious sign of a lady beetle infestation is the appearance of large numbers of bugs congregating on outside structures, cracks and gaps in siding, and inside walls and ceilings.
- Seasonal climate changes – Late summer and early fall are when the beetles tend to infest homes and commercial buildings the most.
- Yellow stains on indoor surfaces – Asian lady beetles may produce a foul-smelling, yellow defensive chemical when threatened. The chemical is not a health hazard but may cause an allergic reaction.
Characteristics of Asian Beetles
These oval-shaped pests range in color from tan to yellow to red. Some Asian beetles have many black spots, while others have no spots at all. They bite when agitated, but it’s not serious. Tens of thousands of beetles will take up residence in your attic, ceilings and even walls to keep warm over the winter months. They will eventually exit into the living areas of your home and begin to completely take over.
To keep Asian beetles from entering, cracks around windows, doors, siding, utility pipes and chimneys should be properly sealed. Damaged screens on doors and windows should be repaired or replaced. But even these pest control methods do not guarantee prevention of an Asian beetle invasion. Extermination services from the professionals are the most effective method for successfully preventing and eliminating Asian beetles.
