Ladybugs in the house : LUSENET : garden project : One Thread

My problem is with ladybugs in my house. They have taken up residence in an upstairs bathroom. It has lots of moisture and sunlight year-round. How do I get ris of them from the house?

Have you tried geckos?

Mike -

There's an article in the newest issue of Country Living magazine (my subscription copy arrived yesterday, so I guess it's the April issue) that discusses this very problem. The solution involves sealing up *all* the cracks and suchlike in your house.

My sister also has this problem - they've learned to live with it. Not the ideal answer, I know.

Hi Mike! If they're not a problem, why not just leaving them there? Personally, when the ladybugs show up in my house, I am glad to see them. They are a benefit to houseplants and (I believe) no detriment to us. Besides, they're supposed to bring good luck!
