    Angry Ladybugs?

    Is anyone else in North America getting infested with fucking ladybugs? Jezus, I must see 50 a day on my balcony. I heard the orange ones bite, but the red ones don't. Anyone know?

    They are ladies. I bet they'll go away if you ask in a polite manner.


    If anything, i think this is a great time to pick up your cam and take some nice pictures.

    Shank Guelph residences were full of them! And I think your right, the orange ones are little buggers that bite.

    Wow, Canada is just now getting hit by the Harmonia infestation? That's crazy... we (as in, the midwest of the US) were hit with that craziness in I think 2001. I remember having dozens get into my parents' house.

    In case anyone was wondering, the ladybugs that have caused the infestation in North America are called Harmonia Lady Beetles, and they were brought over from Japan as a biological control means for aphids. Unfortunately, many of their natural predators disappeared over time, and they began to take over. A lot of work is being done to get rid of them, and most places in NA that had problems in the early 00's have done a pretty good job with that... but it seems they've migrated. So hopefully you guys in Canada won't have to deal with them for too long.

    All ladybugs/lady beetles are capable of biting. However, most instances of bites come from these Harmonia because they are the ones that infest people's houses and come into most contact with humans. Their stings are harmless and basically feel like a sharp pin prick.

    And in case anyone wonders why the hell I know all this, it's because I used to work in an entomology lab that was researching a new biological control method of aphids (primarily a very very small breed of wasp), due to the fact that the US is trying to eradicate Harmonia.

    I remember having problems with them 2 years ago, and nothing last year. Then this year is FAR worse than 2 years ago. I've found 2 in my place so far, but my balcony is infested with the little buggers. There was a thing about it on the news last night too.
