How to Identify the Asian Lady Beetle
The Asian lady beetle is a small bug, about one fourth inch long. It has a distinctive M marking on its head and is orange or red with black spots.
The Asian lady beetle is a common pest in many parts of the United States. They do bite but it is generally not painful. They gather in large numbers trying to gain entry to homes as outdoor temperatures cool.
How to Kill – Outdoors
BUGGSLAYER Insecticide is extremely effective at killing Asian lady beetles. If you are using a hand pump sprayer, mix BUGGSLAYER concentrate in the amount of four ounces to one gallon of water. This provides the proper ratio for spraying the perimeter of your house. Spray the BUGGSLAYER mixture around doors, windows, eaves and soffits, along the foundation in an area about three feet wide. As the Asian lady beetles land and crawl on the treated area they will pickup the deltamethrin particles and the bug will typically die in a few hours. BUGGSLAYER is not an instant knock-down killer. BUGGSLAYER is a residual killer which means it will keep working for weeks after initial treatment, even rain water will not wash off the microscopic particles. Once the treated area is dry, kids and pets can enter the area. Click here for more information and to purchase.
