Asian LadyBugs - - Oh NO!!

Asian LadyBugs: CR RV Service Center might be fully "bugged" when they open up in the morning.
Our trailer has been inside getting nice & warm all weekend. We've been fighting those orange LadyBugs every time trailer got warm. I'd forgotten them w/ weather being sub-zero so long.
Hope there is no laws about transporting non-native Bugs.

We have been dealing with these little buggers at home for many years now, some years are worse than others. We transported a few down to Florida with us as well.

We have been plagued with those little pests for 12 to 15 years now. Everybody blames the DNR for importing them to take care of another pest we have. They (DNR) adamantly denies it.
They have no enemies that I know of, so they just keep multiplying. When disturbed they stink so bad nothing will touch them.
They're not Lady bugs, even tho they look like them. I believe the correct name is Asian beetles. They also will bite!
As stated, some years they are worse then others. Seems like in the fall whe the weather starts turning cooler, they start making an appearance.

Ooops! this was to be part of an on going topic in "Central Ill Fall Campout"
This past October several of us were invaded by thousands of Asian LadyBugs.
Any trailer that had SunShine became covered in litte orange bugs then they'd move inside camper in waves.
Was replying to Robert Beach about them

We call them "potato" bugs. Don't know why, and yes, they do bite. We have a few. Some years worse than others.

I was going to start off by saying we would trade you our STINK BUGS for your LADY BUGS, but after carefull consideration I decided against the trade as we would probably end up with both pests... I don't know what the actual name for this pest is, but stink bug describes them best...

The thousands of orange Asian LadyBugs Invasion happen at a late October Campout. Have even found them in (on) bag chairs when "winerizing" over Veterans Day weekend. Am sure I'll have lots when unrolling awings.

In NorthWest Indiana we have a few(Asian LadyBugs) and "Stink Bugs" TOO. But on sunny fall days we also get "Box Elder Bugs" on sun warmed surfaces, who can stink some when "'squissssed.'"
