Today in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, our office experienced large call volume for Ladybug infestations. Ladybugs are an overwintering insect, and as most of you know, today was a beautiful day. In the late fall, overwintering insects such as ladybugs and western conifer seed bugs will enter the cracks and crevasse of you home, and call this home for the winter. On warm days (like today) these pests will think that the season is over, and start appearing. Usually this happens in high volume in 1-2 weeks, and today was the start of it.

During the months of September, October and November, insects that cannot survive in the cold will attempt to enter your home through the cracks and crevasses in your home. The two most common over wintering insects are Ladybugs and Western Conifer Seed Bugs. Neither of these pests are harmful, they are a nuisance. Back in October, New York had a huge ladybug swarm which left hundreds of people calling our office asking what to do. Homes were invaded with ladybugs because of the sudden increase in temperature, it tricked these pests into thinking it was spring!
Even though the temperature has stayed a steady 35 degrees, we are still receiving calls of people seeing Ladybugs and Western Conifer Seed Bugs in their homes and offices. Our Over Wintering Insects prevention program will solve all of these issues. Our technicians will come out and inspect your entire home, inside and out. They then will make a determination to where the insects are entering your home, and treat the necessary areas. This will prevent a swarm when the weather does increase, and keep these little flying creatures out of your home!
