Asian Beetles / Asian LadyBugs

Ladybugs have long been considered symbols of good fortune. In addition, they help control aphids and other pests from destroying plants and crops. The Asian Beetle is very similar in size, shape, color and markings to the Ladybug and also is useful for controlling insects, however, they can become a nuisance if they should find their way into a home.

What are Asian Lady Bugs?

Imported to the Western United States in the early 1900s, the Asian Beetle was first introduced as a way to control the devastating effects of the aphid and insect pest population at the time. Unfortunately, the Asian Beetle grew to become quite a bother to homeowners and proves challenging to eradicate once they’ve managed to establish themselves inside a building’s interior.

Where Do Asian Beetles Come From?

Native to China, Japan, Korea and Russia, the Asian Beetle is a tree and field dweller that preys mostly on aphids and scale insects. In the late 1980s ,the Asian Beetle population grew to cover most of the U.S. and parts of Canada.

Ladybug Versus Beetle

Because Asian Beetles can be easily confused for Ladybugs, how does one know the difference? Here are several ways to distinguish between the friendly Ladybug and those annoying and harmful Asian Beetles:

Ladybugs have:

  • Deep, dark red coloring that is consistently found on all individual bugs
  • A uniform dot pattern
  • A rounded or oval shaped shell
  • Asian Beetles:

Are multicolored

  • Are attracted to light-colored surfaces
  • Emit an unpleasant odor and produce yellowish secretion

Why Are They Such Pests?

Asian Beetles tend to move into buildings and homes as winter approaches. Finding their way into walls through cracks and crevices in the exterior of a building, they generally remain inside the walls but have been known to move into the interior of homes.

To prevent the infestation of the Asian Beetle:

  • Find access and seal entry points around doors, windows and cracks
  • Set up specially designed traps
  • Although Asian Beetles do not damage structures like termites and ants (nor eat through carpet, clothing and furniture or reproduce in the home), once they have invaded a building, they can be very tricky to get rid of.

Carpenter Ant Extermination: Expert Needed

With the capacity to damage large amounts of wood during nest creation, carpenter ants are a real threat to your home.

Identifying Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants are usually black but can be brown, reddish or yellowish. Also, workers have large mandibles (appendages by the ant’s mouth) and can be winged or wingless.

Why you shouldn’t spray

Before buying a spray from a hardware store, you may want to read up a bit. Carpenter ants often avoid such sprays, simply moving to a different location in your home. Also, in order to survive, they sometimes separate into more colonies increasing their prevalence. In addition, queen ants can outlive sprays and merely lay more eggs to replace dead ants. In order to ensure extermination, hire a professional.

Hire a professional

Professionals use non-repellent insecticides because ants will not avoid them. Also, professionals know just how to locate a nest. Living in water- damaged or decayed wood, they often move into the structural part of a building.

The Bug Man & Queen Bee has been a staple for carpenter ant extermination for over 20 years. If they don’t handle your pest problems the first time, The Bug Man & Queen Bee guarantees (if done within same calendar year) they will be back, at no additional cost, for those clever pests that rarely get through.

When You Need Bee Extermination

There are many different species of bee, some are relatively harmless while others swarm and can even kill animals and people. Bee stings also cause allergic reactions that vary from itching to loss of consciousness.

Keep in mind that bee attacks most often occur when people swat at a bee or come near a nest. Knowing when you need a bee extermination can be crucial to the safety of your home.

Tips 

To prevent the need for bee extermination in the first place, cover garbage bins securely and do not leave food outside of your home. Also, keep screens and doors shut tightly and fill in any openings in your home’s walls and eaves.

Don’t Worry

It is natural to have a few bees around your home or garden. Having a few bees around does not mean that there is a hive near your home as they often travel in order to find food.

Get Help

Seeing large numbers of bees, or bees near your house are both warning signs. Because bees create colonies in dark deep areas, they often nest in trees but can also create a nest within your exterior walls. Honey bee colonies are permanent and if you see bees on your home or entering a crack in your wall it is time to hire a professional bee exterminator.
