Angry Ladybugs

I had NO idea where to put this so move it if it needs to be moved. How do you kill/get rid of ladybugs? I googled it and all it said was "Don't kill the poor little ladybugs, they're harmless" Well, I'm sick of them! The are a million in my room, making it stink. I tried sucking them up with the sweeper but there back in under 5 minutes! So I want to know how do you kill these stinky, nasty bugs. I don't care if it natural or painless, I just want them gone.

You're pretty much out of luck, I'm afraid.

They come out whenever the weather warms up to a certain temp. The infestations are annoying, but don't last forever.

As far as 'bug attacks' go, they're pretty harmless. They don't bite or sting, and although they do smell if you squish them, I'd rather have them than bees, wasps, hornets, or horse flies.

Nothing short of fogging the whole house will help, and even if you do that it still won't take care of them getting in; it just means they'll die faster.

We get them as well and they are annoying. I have sprayed them with flying insect sprays and I think a whole house fogger would do the trick as well. Just follow the directions on the chemicals. They can be harmul to other animals in the house as well as humans.

But they've been in my house year round! It's driving me insane. Would a regular bug spray kill them?

Try the whole house foggers, then. They usually take care of infestations.

Sounds like you don't just have the regular, annoying infestations we all get, but a breeding ground somewhere in, around, or under the house.

I use the foggers for house centipedes. Nasty, disgusting, vile things! Harmless, but they're ugly and can get get HUGE.

Foggers work great, but you must follow the instructions to the letter. They're dangerous if used incorrectly.
