Ladybirds Control & Removal

Ladybird Control & Removal

Ladybirds are actually beneficial for pest control, as they are natural predators of many garden pests such as aphids, mites, and scale insects. They are a valuable asset to farmers and gardeners as they help to keep populations of these pests under control.

However, in some cases, ladybirds can become a nuisance when they enter homes in large numbers. This is especially common in September to December when they are seeking shelter for the winter. While they are not harmful to humans or pets, their presence can be annoying and they can leave stains on walls and furniture and also set off fire alarms and other sensitive equipment. 


Ladybird Facts.

Here are some interesting facts about ladybirds:

  1. Ladybirds are also known as ladybugs, lady beetles, or ladybird beetles. The name "ladybird" is believed to have originated in Europe, where the insects were named after the Virgin Mary, who was often depicted wearing a red cloak.

  2. There are over 5,000 species of ladybirds worldwide. In North America, the most common species is the seven-spotted ladybird (Coccinella septempunctata).

  3. Ladybirds come in a range of colors, including red, orange, yellow, and black, and can have spots or stripes.

  4. Ladybirds are considered beneficial insects because they are predators that feed on other insects, such as aphids, mites, and scale insects. They can consume up to 50 aphids in a single day.

  5. Ladybirds are able to secrete a foul-smelling yellow liquid from their legs when threatened. This helps to deter predators.

  6. Ladybirds are able to fly at speeds of up to 24 km/h (15 mph).

  7. Ladybirds are social insects that often gather together in large groups during the winter to hibernate.

  8. In some cultures, ladybirds are considered a symbol of good luck or fortune. It is believed that if a ladybird lands on you, you will have good luck.

  9. Ladybirds have a lifespan of about one year. They typically lay their eggs on plants, and the larvae hatch and feed on aphids and other small insects before pupating and becoming adults.

  10. Ladybirds are important for maintaining ecological balance in their ecosystems. They are a valuable asset to farmers and gardeners as they help to keep populations of pests under control.

Ladybird Life cycle

Ladybird Life cycle.

The life cycle of a ladybird can be divided into four stages: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Here is a brief overview of each stage:

  1. Egg: Female ladybirds lay their eggs on the undersides of leaves, typically near aphid colonies or other areas with an abundance of prey. The eggs are usually yellow or orange and are laid in groups of 10 to 50.

  2. Larva: The larvae hatch from the eggs in 3 to 7 days, depending on the species and environmental conditions. Ladybird larvae are elongated and have six legs. They are voracious predators that feed on aphids, mites, and other small insects. Ladybird larvae can go through several molts as they grow and develop.

  3. Pupa: After the larval stage, the ladybird enters the pupal stage, during which it undergoes a complete metamorphosis. The pupa is usually yellow or orange and is attached to a leaf or other substrate. During this stage, the ladybird undergoes a complete transformation, developing wings and other adult features.

  4. Adult: After emerging from the pupa, the ladybird is now an adult and is ready to mate and lay eggs. Ladybirds can live for up to a year in the wild, depending on the species and environmental conditions.

Ladybirds are fascinating insects with a complex life cycle that allows them to play an important role in maintaining ecological balance in their ecosystems.
