Information on Lady Bugs & How They Can Affect Your NY, NJ or CT Property


1/32″ to 3/8″ long and usually red with black dots. They have two small antennae and a round-shaped body.


Ladybugs are an outdoor pest. They are overwintering pests and will wind up in structures.

How do they affect me?

Ladybugs are beneficial insects. They are one of the natural pest control methods for a garden because of their ability to eat aphids. Since they are an overwintering insect, they will use your home to stay, which can be a nuisance.

What can I do?

Ensure all possible entryways to your home are sealed off, keeping an eye on the attic, as this is a common area they are found. Read more about ladybugs on our blog. We offer an overwintering service that will prevent ladybugs from entering your home. Contact us if you are interested or would like more information.
