First of all, contact us. The key to controlling an asian beetle population is to focus on prevention as best as you can. So, timing is everything. Seal as many cracks and holes on the outside of your home as possible, especially on the south and west walls where the sun heats the home during the late summer and fall.

How to Identify an Asian Lady Beetle
Asian lady beetles are brownish-orange in color, have many black spots or none at all. They are typically 1/4 of an inch long and emit a foul odor. Asian beetles are capable of biting and can cause allergic reactions.
Like box elder bugs and cluster flies, asian beetles congregate on the sunny south and west walls of buildings in early autumn, attracted to the warmth. They crawl into cracks and crevices on the outside of buildings and stay there for the winter out of the colder elements. On warm days, they wake up and emerge to bask in the sun.
Originally introduced to North American from Asia in the early 1900s, these insects were used to control aphids and scale insects on plants and crops. They do a great job at controlling those plant pests, but have now become pests themselves as they invade homes each year when crops are harvested.
Asian beetles prey on aphids and other plant pests, so they are found on a wide variety of plants outside.

“Once the temps dropped in the Fall, the bugs started coming in, Asian lady beetles, stink bugs and boxelder bugs.”
“We purchased our house last summer (2016). We live close to the forest preserves, in a heavy tree village. Once the temps dropped in the Fall, the bugs started coming in, Asian lady beetles, stink bugs and box elder bugs. Then mice found a way in under out sun porch, EEK! Our realtor recommended Rose Pest Solutions to us, and we called to set up an appointment. They quickly sent out our technician, his name is Vance. Vance is the epitome of what every company wants in an employee. His customer service is top notch, he works quietly, effectively and efficiently. He precisely inspected both inside & outside of the house and found every little opening to get into our house from the outside and inspected the inside to find every opening they could get in. I couldn’t be more pleased with the service and I am once again comfortable in my home. Thank you Vance!”
