Multicolored Asian Lady Beetles (Lady Bugs)
Multicolored Asian Lady Beetles are an extremely invasive and non-native insect spreading through most of America. They are not harmful, but in the colder months they swarm in large aggregations on the sunny side of buildings and are constantly trying to invade homes in search of a warmer place to overwinter. They are considered beneficial to the environment as they eat crop destroying insects such as the aphid. However, because they are an import, they have no native predator and populations are increasing exponentially over time.
