Ladybirds mostly become a pest when they cluster whilst overwintering, they generally return to the same area which is due to pheromone. If you want to make sure you won't be dealing with a ladybird pest, please get in touch.

What You Need to Know About Ladybirds

The Common Species. The two-spot ladybird which is up to 5mm in size and the larger seven spot ladybirds which are up to 8mm long are most common, although there are about 40 other species found in the UK.

What Ladybirds Eat. Both adults and larvae are carnivores and feed on aphids and small insects such as green fly.

Ladybird Removal Treatment

Ladybirds are brightly coloured which is their defence mechanism. This warns predators of their bitter taste to stop them getting eaten. This helps survival. They are also able to exude a pungent yellow oily fluid. It helps to ward off ants, birds and people. Its the yellow staining that can be seen if you try to pick them up. 

Overwintering Ladybird

During the winter (starting around October) adults hibernate in cracks, crevices and leaf litter. This can be in window or door frames of a building. They can also cluster together in a roof void or loft space. It can be at this time that they find warmth to which leads them into the property. The ladybirds emerge in April to find a mate. They can be attracted back to the same location each year. This is due to them leaving a pheromone scent. It can be tracked and followed each year.
