Are you seeing a ton of ladybugs in your home?

Posted: Updated:

If you think there are more ladybugs out this year, you're not the only one.

We've had several people comment on our Facebook page saying their homes have been overrun by the red bug.

Denita York said she opened her door on Wednesday and she was hit by a horde of the beetles.

"There were probably about 10 to 15 that came in the house," said York. "They were landing on my clothes, and I walked outside. They had covered the whole back on the house."

She isn't the only one.

Several people have shared their own infestation picture on Facebook.

Some told us they can't even sit outside because of the bugs.

"You'll see them a lot on times of the eaves," said Scott Raibley with Action Pest Control. "They're just trying to find a way to get into your home."

Raibley tells 14 News they've had about five calls already about the ladybugs - at least that's what people call them.

Scott says they're actually Asian Lady Beetles. They come out every year around late October.

He says some years are worse than others and since we had more rain this spring, more Aphids were out. Aphids are little insects that are perfect food the lady beetles.

"They feed on the aphids and that gives them good conditions to multiply," said Raibley.

If you want to keep them out of your home, there are a couple of things you can do.

Put a screen on your chimney, or caulk up any cracks. Scott says you can just wait it out if you want.

Chances are, they'll leave in one or two days, just like they did for York.
