How can I get rid of lady bugs in my house?They are everywhere.

Answer:

Demon WP is a great product for Lady bugs. Unfortunately, if you are dealing with them in your house right now you will only see limited results. Lady bugs move into structures to overwinter. They usually squeeze into wall voids, false ceilings, attics and other areas that are inaccessible to people and insecticides. As the heat kicks on in the house, the lady bugs warm up and start becoming active and emerge from hiding, driving homeowners nuts. Because most folks usually have no idea where the bugs are harboring you can only treat around baseboards, door frames and window frames and hope the insects will emerge where you have sprayed. After they contact the treated areas, it can take several hours for them to die. It is still worth spraying now to get rid of some of the bugs, but you will keep seeing them until spring when they will emerge en masse and leave your home. They do not eat, mate or lay eggs while indoors so need to worry about any damage or future baby lady bugs. This year you can be proactive by stopping these pests before they move in for the winter . You should spray Demon WP outdoors around your door frames, window frames, vents, eaves, around the bottom of your foundation, and any other crack or crevice where an insect could gain entry once a month August-November. We do have an Overwintering kit that includes Demon WP and enough product apply all monthly treatments during August-November.  Please let us know if you have any questions, we are always happy to help.
