Identification: the Asian Lady Beetle is 1/4" long oval shaped insect. It looks very similar to a ladybug but is orange in color rather than red.

Habits: These insects were introduced to the United States to control aphids on agriculture crops. The female Asian Lady Beetle lays 500-700 eggs, which hatch in about 1 month. In the fall when temperatures start to fall in the evening the Asian Lady Beetles will invade structures to find a place to overwinter.

Control: The best method for control is a thorough treatment of the exterior of the home with a residual chemical in the fall. Monroe Pest Control Co., Inc. will eliminate your Asian lady beetle infestation in one visit and we warranty our work.
