Lady Beetle (Ladybug) – Traps

One ladybug is a curiosity. Four ladybugs are beneficial insects. But hundreds of ladybugs are a downright nuisance!

They march across the dining room table, they crawl up the living room drapes. They make a crackly mess when stepped on by accident.

If you have lady beetles invading your house, you may need a trap to capture them as they come out of their hiding places.

These three sources show how to build lady beetle traps.

If you build one, be sure to email me to let me know how it works!
