These Aren't Ladybugs That Bring Good Luck, They're Impostors Here to Bite You (Video)

Ladybugs are adorable and known to bring good luck and fortune. How well do you know ladybugs? That ladybug you are playing with may actually be an Asian lady beetle known as Harmonia axyridis.

These bugs are similar to ladybugs, but they are a little larger and more aggressive. They bite, too! The native North American ladybug is often referred to as ladybird beetles in Europe. It’s harmless and friendly.

Lady beetles come from the Coccinella family. The native North American lady beetle (Coccinella novemnotata) is 9-spotted, and the native European lady beetle (Coccinella septempunctata) is seven spotted.

There are over 5,000 different species of these insects, and they all have different temperaments, characteristics, and appetites, as noted by National Geographic.

Native ladybugs are harmless, don’t bite, and eat several garden pests. The multicolored Asian lady beetle causes destruction.

A study conducted at Penn State’s College of Agriculture Sciences confirmed that the beetles bite and leave a yellow defensive chemical which causes spots on the walls and fabrics. The fluid smells bad, and many people find it annoying. Some may even deal with an allergic reaction.

How to spot the difference?

Multicolored Asian lady beetles are larger and have a wider range of colors when compared to native ladybugs. They have a distinctive black “M” design on their head.

If you have some of these at home, don’t rush into squashing them, because they will release their noxious yellow fluid. According to the USDA, house owners should seal any openings and holes.

Asian Lady Beetles enter window frames and wall spaces in fall and congregate in the dark. They will leave the hole in spring to look for food. You can find them in attics, closets, crawl spaces and storage areas. Some bugs may move to another area in the house.

    Hello Angle#3,

    Charlie here. Another infestation gone wrong by the experts. To cure one problem they brought another. Often WORSE than the cure and some didn’t even do what they were supposed too.

    Take for instance illegal immigration. The diversity would make America stronger and better they said. ALL LIES by the communist Democraps to destroy and take down America.

    Yet, still no hanging of any of them for TREASON. :twisted: :twisted:


    Charlie (I will supply the doughnuts to any hanging of a Democrap) :razz: :razz:
